A state senator and an insurance agency executive have won the primary election for a University of Nebraska Board of Regents seat representing the southeast part of the state.

State Sen. Lavon Heidemann and David City insurance agent Mike Jones now advance to the November election for District 5.

Heidemann, an Elk Creek farmer and state lawmaker, is leaving the Legislature after this year because of term limits.

A third candidate, former regent and forensic pathologist Robert Prokop, was defeated.

District 5 includes portions of western Lancaster County and 16 southeast Nebraska counties.

The candidates are vying to replace Regent Jim McClurg of Lincoln, who is retiring after this year.
