Lincoln, Neb. — A Democratic congressional candidate in Nebraska was exposed to the coronavirus after her fiancee, a county commissioner in Lincoln, became infected.

State Sen. Kate Bolz, of Lincoln, says she is self-isolating after her fiancee, Sean Flowerday, tested positive for the virus earlier in the day. Flowerday is the chairman of the Lancaster County Board of Commissioners.

Bolz is running against incumbent Republican U.S. Rep. Jeff Fortenberry for the House seat in Nebraskas 1st Congressional District.

The GOP-heavy district includes Lincoln, Bellevue, Fremont and Norfolk, along with other parts of eastern Nebraska excluding Omaha and its suburbs.
