Former Omaha Mayor Hal Daub and lawyer Ann Ferlic Ashford have won a four-way primary race to represent a large swath of Omaha on the University of Nebraska Board of Regents.

The two will face off in November for the regents seat, one of four that are on the November ballot.

The candidates are seeking to replace Regent Randy Ferlic of Omaha, who is retiring. Ann Ferlic Ashford is his daughter.

The District 8 primary race also included Carl Jennings, an Omaha businessman; and Mark Lakers, an agribusiness investment banker who ran for governor in 2010 but dropped out after he was accused of campaign finance violations.

Larry Bradley and incumbent Bob Whitehouse have both advanced in the race to represent eastern Omaha on the University of Nebraska Board of Regents.

They were the only two candidates listed in Tuesday's primary race for the fourth district.

Whitehouse, an educational consultant and former high school principal, was elected to the board in 2006. He serves as the board's chairman. Bradley is an adjunct professor at the University of Nebraska-Omaha and has served on the Papio-Missouri Natural Resource District.

The regents' district includes eastern Douglas and northeast Sarpy counties.

The district includes most of western Douglas County.
