Jean Stothert won a third term as Omaha mayor Tuesday.


Mayor Jean Stothert speaks during a news conference inside her office on Tuesday.

Stothert, who in 2013 became the first woman to hold the office in Omaha, left little doubt this time. She had more than doubled the vote total of commercial real estate broker RJ Neary less than an hour after the polls closed. 

Neary called Stothert shortly before 9 p.m. to congratulate her, then conceded the race publicly a few minutes later, according to KETV, Omaha’s ABC affiliate.

That came after Stothert had received 47,589 votes — or 67.2% of the tabulated votes.
