Nebraska Rep. Lee Terry (R), dubbed by Anti-Keystone XL pipeline group Bold Nebraska as the state’s “top climate denier,” will no longer represent the state, after being unseated by his Democratic challenger Tuesday.

Brad Ashford (D) won Terry’s congressional seat after a tight race, which Terry conceded Wednesday afternoon. The race was being closely watched by national Democrats — the Pro-Democrat House Majority PAC contributed ad money to help Ashford win, and the DCCC put Ashford in its “Red to Blue” program, which supports Democrats in certain close races.
