Democrat Dave Domina celebrates the 26th Amendment as he courts support from young voters in his United States Senate campaign.
Domina honored Anthony LaMere of South Sioux City, killed in the line of duty in Viet Nam on the day the 26th Amendment to the United States was ratified, July 1st of 1971 during a rally at the state Capitol.
“And that Nebraskan would have been old enough to vote if he had lived to sunset on the day that duty claimed him for our country. He died before he learned of the ratification of the right of 18 year old citizens to vote,” Domina stated.
LaMere was 20. He was a member of the Winnebago Tribe.
Domina rallied with a few young voters at the Capitol. He said the youth vote could become a factor in his race against Republican Ben Sasse and independent Jim Jenkins.
