Retired Brigadier General Bacon’s seat remains a perennial target for the Democratic Congression Campaign Committee (DCCC). 

Unlike the rest of Nebraska, the 2nd District is marginally Republican. Omaha and its inner suburbs appear, by some measures, to have grown weary of President Trump's rhetoric and behavior, despite their pro-business sensibilities. 

Bacon's re-election shows how Republicans can embrace the Trump agenda and secure that finicky, yet crucial "soft Republican" vote. 

For decades, America's suburban sprawls have leaned right. 

While it's not unreasonable to assume wasteful Democratic proposals like Medicare-for-All and a $15 minimum wage will drive them back, Republicans need to be proactive.

Don Bacon can show us how it's done.
