Democrat Hillary Clinton and her biggest Nebraska supporter leave no doubt they want that one electoral vote Democrats believe they can pluck from Nebraska.
It happened in 2008. Democrats hope for a repeat eight years later.
President Barack Obama took the electoral vote from the Second Congressional District in 2008, even though he soundly lost statewide in Nebraska to Republican John McCain that year.
Omaha Billionaire Warren Buffett pledged to give a ride to anyone who might have difficulty getting to the polls on Election Day.
“My goal is to have the turn out in Douglas and Sarpy Counties, the Second District, is to have the turn out here be the highest percentage of potential voters of any district in the country,” Buffett said to cheers at the Clinton rally at Omaha North Magnet High School on late Monday afternoon.
If he reaches that goal, Democrat Hillary Clinton vowed to return.
“I will, shortly after I become president sometime as soon as I can arrange it, come back here and Warren and I will dance in the streets of Omaha together,” Clinton said to even louder cheers as she wrapped up her speech.
Because Nebraska distributes electoral votes proportionately, the elector from the 2nd Congressional District is up for grabs.
Buffett told the audience he had seen a projection that gave 269 votes each to Clinton and Republican Donald Trump, an even split. Buffett said he was looking at the voters who could give the crucial vote needed for Clinton to have 270. He has set up a website, Drive 2 Vote, in which those having difficulty getting to the polls can request a ride.
Buffett also criticized Trump for not releasing his tax returns. He challenged Trump to meet with him at a place of his choosing to disclose their tax returns and take questions on their contents. Buffett added Trump had shown no decency in attacking Muslim American Khizr Khan, who had been critical of Trump during a speech at the Democratic National Convention in which he talked about losing his son in the war in Iraq.
