The latest Census numbers offer some good news for Nebraska. UNL Political Science Professor Jon Hibbing tells us that we’ve been very fortunate not to lose House members. He does expect some shifting of the Omaha Metro area into the First District.
“Some of the so-called suburbs of Omaha would probably be moving into the first district some and also we will see encroachment of the third district further east and closer to Lincoln.”
Hibbing says that he doubts there will be any political shift in districts because of the redrawn lines.
