SOUTH SIOUX CITY, NE (KTIV) -
After winning the Democratic primary Tuesday night, U.S. Senate candidate Dave Domina was back on the campaign trail, stopping in South Sioux City, Nebraska on Wednesday.

Domina will now face Republican Ben Sasse for Mike Johanns' open Senate seat.

Domina says he will run a campaign "in favor of things," and claims that Sasse is against veteran's benefits and minimum wage. He also says Sasse wants to privatize Social Security.
    
Sasse is backed by the Tea Party, which Domina says is too extreme to be involved in the lives of Nebraskans.

"I understand the people of our state," said Domina. "My agenda is to serve the people of Nebraska. My agenda is not to serve the people who support and fund the Tea Party."

Sasse says he won because of support of people in Nebraska and even across the country.

"Conservatives across the country know that our country is headed in a bad direction, and when the people in Nebraska were getting on board with this campaign, some other national conservative groups and individuals joined us and became honorary Nebraskans as well.

The general election is November 4.
