With 39 percent of the vote, Fortenberry won the Republican primary to replace retiring Doug Bereuter. He defeated Speaker of the Nebraska Legislature Curt Bromm (33%), as well as businessman Greg Ruehle, who was sponsored by the Club for Growth (21 percent ). He defeated State Senator Matt Connealy in the general election by a margin of 54 percent to 43 percent. He won every county except Thurston and Burt. For the first time since 2004, Fortenberry faced a Republican primary challenge. He faced two opponents and received 84% of the vote. He was re-elected to a fourth term, defeating legislative staffer Ivy Harper by a margin of 71 percent to 29%.
In October 2018, while campaigning for an eighth term, it was reported that Fortenberry’s chief of staff threatened Ari Kohen, a professor at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln, after Kohen liked a Facebook post depicting a photo of a vandalised Fortenberry campaign sign. Kohen’s supervisor, as well as the dean and chancellor of the university, were notified. In response, Kohen filed a complaint with the Office of Congressional Ethics, arguing that free expression had been harmed. With 60 percent of the vote, Fortenberry defeated Democratic nominee Jessica McClure, but she lost in Lancaster County.
During the week of April 12, 2021, Fortenberry used the emergency duress button in his Capitol office to make two bogus requests for emergency service to the United States Capitol Police. The calls were presumably not made in the event of an actual emergency, but rather to test the agency’s response time.
