Clinton's campaign will begin airing two ads in Nebraska's 2nd District around Omaha, according to a Clinton campaign official.
 
President Obama won the district in 2008 and lost it in 2012. Rep. Brad Ashford, a Democrat, won the seat in 2014 after it had been in GOP control since 1995.
 
Obama's win there was the only time a Democrat won an electoral vote from Nebraska in the last 12 presidential elections.
 
Both ads, which are each 30 seconds, focus on Clinton's work on the Children's Health Insurance Program. They are part of a TV ad campaign worth at least $10 million in battleground states across the country.
 
Clinton has signaled she plans to compete in GOP-leaning states; she is scheduled to campaign with Obama in North Carolina next week.
