LINCOLN, Neb. (KOLN) - One of the most contentious races in Lancaster County is the race for for the office of county attorney.

Republican Pat Condon is the incumbent running for a second term against Democrat Adam Morfeld.

The Lancaster County Election Office said there are still about 7,350 votes left to count over the next 10 days (3,500 early vote ballots, 2,000 resolution ballots and 1,850 provisional ballots.)

Condon was originally appointed to the position in 2017 and has more than 30 years of experience in the Lancaster county attorney’s office, which he said makes him more qualified compared to his opponent.

Morfeld said he’ll bring about change to the office. He has campaigned on the need for more transparency in that position, and with a goal to clear the backlog in processing sex assault kits.
