Nebraska Secretary of State Evnen positive for COVID-19
LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) — Nebraska Secretary of State Bob Evnen has tested positive for the coronavirus on Sunday, one day before he was scheduled to announce his re-election bid.
A spokeswoman says Evnen has been been fully vaccinated against the virus, and his symptoms are not severe.
She says Evnen is working from his home office. Evnen, a Republican, was supposed to hold an in-person campaign event on Monday but abruptly canceled it, citing unforeseen circumstances.
His campaign made the announcement in an email. Evnen was first elected in 2018.
