The next Omaha Mayor's race is three years away but one party is already taking shots at a potential candidate. 

Nebraska's Democratic Party officials say they will challenge Omaha Mayor Jean Stothert if she decides to run for a third term, an idea Stothert told the Omaha World-Herald she's considering the idea. 

State Democrats say Nebraska's term limit law could be in pay. They are upset that a group with Republican ties is trying to block Lincoln Mayor Chris Beutler from running for a fourth term.
