The three incumbents, all of whom are Republicans, are seeking reelection. Members of Congress receive $174,000 annually.

In the 1st District, Rep. Jeff Fortenberry of Lincoln is opposed by Kate Bolz of Lincoln, a state senator who won the Democratic nomination. 

Republican Rep. Don Bacon of Papillion is opposed by Democratic nominee Kara Eastman of Omaha in a rematch of their 2018 contest.

In the 3rd District, Republican Rep. Adrian Smith of Gering faces Mark Elworth Jr. of Omaha, the Democratic nominee. 

Libertarian nominees are on the ballot in all three races: Dennis Grace of Fremont, 1st District; Tyler Schaeffer of Omaha, 2nd District; and Dustin Hobbs of Grand Island, 3rd District.
