Brad Ashford wants to return to Congress and represent Nebraska's 2nd Congressional District.        

He's announced he'll seek the Democratic nomination next year, hoping for a rematch with U.S. Rep. Don Bacon, the Republican who beat him last November. Ashford served just one two-year term, having beaten eight-term Republican Rep. Lee Terry in 2014. Ashford had served in the officially nonpartisan Legislature for 16 years.

Ashford's wife, Ann, had said she was considering a run but would step aside if her husband were to opt in.

Already in the Democratic primary race is Kara Eastman, a social worker and president and CEO of Omaha Healthy Kids Alliance.
