The Nebraska Democratic Party (NDP) is the affiliate of the Democratic Party in the state of Nebraska. As of 2013, the party holds none of Nebraska's statewide offices or congressional seats.
Party history 
Democrats dominated Nebraska until 1860. In 1890, Democrat William Jennings Bryan ran for President three times but lost every time. The state has elected more Democrats to the governor seat and into Congress.
Nebraska passed a referendum in 1937 and it is the country's only unicameral legislature known as the Nebraska Unicameral. It is a nonpartisan single-house system.
Nevertheless, despite the lack of party registration, party primaries or party-based caucasing, senators in the legislature are informally affiliated with political parties in the state by party endorsements and campaign support. In the 2012 election, it was estimated that 17 senators were Democratic affiliates.
