OMAHA, Neb. (AP) -- Omaha attorney Dave Domina has won Nebraska's Democratic primary election for U.S. Senate.

Domina easily defeated Larry Marvin of Fremont in Tuesday's primary race. He will face the winner of the Republican primary in a contest to replace Republican U.S. Sen. Mike Johanns, who is not seeking a second term.

The GOP enters the race as a strong favorite in conservative Nebraska.

Domina is best known for his opposition to construction of the Keystone XL oil pipeline.

Dave Domina issued the following statement on Ben Sasse and the U.S Senate primary results:

“Thank you to Nebraskans who selected me, tonight, to wage a focused, reasonable campaign for the privilege of serving as your strong, thoughtful voice in the United States Senate. I understand my duty to all Nebraskans to campaign honorably, focus on principles that unite us as Americans, and allow our differences to be honest and thoughtful, not manipulative and political.

A Senator’s work is not reckless obstructionism. It is not about what one is against. A Senator must find, form and frame opportunities for Nebraskans and the American people. A Senator does not take, he or she gives! The work is to assure that the fundamental rights and benefits of American life belong equally to all, and not only to an endowed few.

I see an America of promise and vision, and of dreams and accomplishments. I see an America of laughter and safety, of triumph and great advances. My America is second not none -- for everyone. I differ from Mr. Sasse.”
