Party history[edit]

After 1860, the Republicans dominated the state for 30 years. Senator George W. Norris played a major role in the Tennessee Valley Authority.The state has been strongly Republican in presidential elections.

Nebraska passed a referendum in 1937 and it is the country's only unicameral legislature known as the Nebraska Unicameral. It is a nonpartisan single-house system.[1]

Political plans[edit]

In December 2009 the Party organized a nationwide effort to unseat Democratic Senator Ben Nelson in 2012 under the theme "Give Ben The Boot".

Current elected officials[edit]

The Nebraska Republican Party controls all six statewide offices, both of the state's U.S. Senate seats and all three of the state's U.S. House seats. While the Nebraska state legislature is officially non-partisan (and unicameral), Republicans hold a supermajority in its chamber when taking into account legislators' political affiliations.
