Nebraska Sen. Ben Sasse will retain his US Senate seat against Democratic challenger Chris Janicek, according to projections from Decision Desk HQ.

Sasse was elected to the Senate in 2014 after defeating Democrat Dave Domina by 32.9 percentage points. Prior to serving in Congress, Sasse served as the president of Midland University for five years.

In the 2016 presidential election, the state of Nebraska voted for President Donald Trump over Hillary Clinton by 25 points.

The contest is “safe” Republican, according to Sabato’s Crystal Ball with the University of Virginia Center for Politics.
