Don Rowe appeared headed for a victory over Patrick Leahy in Omaha's District 5 City Council race Tuesday.
Don Rowe and Patrick Leahy will advance to the general election to compete to represent southwest Omaha’s District 5. And in North Omaha's District 2, incumbent Ben Gray will face Juanita Johnson.
It was too close to call the race in Omaha's District 5 Tuesday night, but incumbent City Councilwoman Colleen Brennan appeared to have lost her seat on the Omaha City Council months after being appointed.
The candidates say the district could benefit from better public transportation, among other points of agreement. But they vary on how to address the pandemic recovery, policing and other issues.
