The chairman of Donald Trump’s Nebraska campaign says the tone is set for the general election following the Republican National Convention.
“I think the Republican Party is firmly united behind Donald Trump as out nominee,” says State Senator Beau McCoy. “I think that’s a good thing and I think it positions us in the best that we can be positioned to beat Hillary Clinton in November.”
Nebraska delegate Debby Brehm has supported Donald Trump from the first moments of his campaign. She says Trump’s address at the convention should sway undecided voters.
“Anybody that heard that speech and doesn’t still, sitting on the fence, know that they can support Trump, I don’t know where they’re coming from,” Brehm said.
Now that the Republican National Convention is over, Trump’s supporters in Nebraska are preparing for the general election campaign. McCoy says the strategy in Nebraska will be determined soon.
“I expect the Trump campaign, we’re going to be very involved in the second congressional district as we will be across the state,” McCoy said.
Speaking specifically about the second congressional district, which largely covers Omaha, McCoy says he expects a close race between Trump and Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton.
