Winners now clear in Lincoln City Council races

LINCOLN, Neb. (KLKN) — The results of two Lincoln City Council primaries became clear Wednesday after more early ballots were counted.

In District 2, Bailey Feit punched her ticket to the May 2 general election.

She will face Tom Duden, whose first-place finish was evident Tuesday night.

In the four-way race, Duden got 36% of the vote, while Feit had 29%. Peter Katt and Thien Chu finished with 24% and 11%, respectively.

Duden is a Republican, and Feit is a Democrat, but city elections are nonpartisan.

In District 4, Republican Wayne Reinwald and Democrat Brodey B. Weber will advance.

Maggie Mae Squires and Kay Siebler, both Democrats, were eliminated.

It was a close race, with each candidate within only a few hundred votes of one another.

The other two council races had only two candidates, so all four advanced to the general election.

Only about 300 early ballots and 430 provisional ballots still need to be counted, according to the Lancaster County Election Commission.

Those ballots will be counted later this week.
