Dave Domina was a 2014 Democratic candidate seeking election to the U.S. Senate from Nebraska. Domina is a well known Nebraska trial lawyer who is currently representing landowners fighting to stop construction of the Keystone XL Pipeline. Domina has been listed as one of the top 100 trial lawyers in the nation by the National Trial Lawyers Association.[1]

Domina was seeking the seat of Sen. Mike Johanns (R), who did not run for re-election in 2014. He won the Democratic nomination in the primary on May 13, 2014 and was defeated in the general election by Ben Sasse (R) in the general election on November 4, 2014.


Domina positioned himself as a moderate opposed to right-left ideologies: "We cannot bicker our way out of our troubles. Let’s be united in a new coalition of Nebraskans. Not left. Not right. Not reaching across the aisle, but tearing the aisle out."[1]

He was also opposed to corporate interests, saying, ”we must break them up, not let them break us down... we must take back our markets and restore real competition, not pay unfair taxes while Big Money escapes through thousands of tax loopholes in the nation’s revenue bucket."[2]
