WASHINGTON — Tuesday marked a change for thousands of Nebraskans. For the first time in more than three months, those living in Nebraska's 1st District will have a representative in Congress.
Former State Sen. Mike Flood officially became a congressman after a swearing-in ceremony on Tuesday at the U.S. Capitol. On Monday, he submitted his formal resignation as a state senator.
Gov. Pete Ricketts will pick Flood's replacement in the Unicameral based on applications, which were due last Friday.
