Stothert got 32 percent of the votes to incumbent Democrat Mayor Jim Suttle‘s 24 percent.

The two will face off in the general election on May 14.

With 100 percent of the precints counted, Stothert won the race with 18,870 votes out of 61,278, the Douglas County Election Commission reported.

Suttle had 14,309 votes.

The exact vote tally will be reviewed and certified in a week.

Republican Dave Nabity -- a former candidate for Nebraska governor -- finished third with 17 percent. Independent state senator Brad Ashford had 13 percent and Republican Dan Welch had 12 percent.

Stothert has 12 years of experience as a critical care nurse, nursing manager, head nurse and the department head of cardiovascular surgery at St. Louis University.

After moving to Omaha with husband Joe, daughter Elizabeth and son Andrew, she was appointed to the Millard school board in 1997, elected and re-elected for three terms, including three years as president of the board.

In 2009, Stothert was elected to the Omaha City Council.
