(Lincoln, NE) -- The Nebraska GOP is reminding voters about a candidate on the ballot that shouldn't be voted for.
On Thursday, the Nebraska Republican Party issued an alert reminding Republicans that former Congressman Jeff Fortenberry's name would appear on the ballot even though he had resigned and suspended his campaign.
"Republicans in the 1st Congressional District are encouraged to vote for a candidate in the primary for Congress. We want to be clear that while Jeff Fortenberry's name appears on the ballot, he has resigned from Congress and is not seeking reelection. We are issuing this alert as a friendly reminder for folks who may not have heard that names on the ballot were finalized before his resignation." - NEGOP Chairman Dan Welch
