OMAHA, Nebraska (AP) - U.S. Rep. Adrian Smith has won the Republican nomination for Nebraska's 3rd Congressional District, defeating little known candidate Bob Lingenfelter.
Lingenfelter raised no money for the race. Smith enters the general election with more than $500,000 cash on hand.
Smith is seeking his fourth term in Congress. Smith won the 2010 general election with 70 percent of the vote.
In the November general election, Smith faces Democrat Mark Sullivan, who ran unopposed in the Democratic primary.
