The Democratic presidential candidate claimed an electoral vote in the Omaha-based 2nd Congressional District — the first time in more than four decades a Democrat won any of Nebraska’s electoral votes.
The Omaha World-Herald is calling the race after Obama won 8,434 out of 15,039 early votes that arrived too late to be included in Tuesday’s results. They were counted today by Douglas County election officials.
That makes 365 electoral votes for Obama, which is way closer to my projection 375 electoral votes than it is to Emily's preposterous projection of 353 electoral votes. I accept cash or personal check.
You can all buy me drinks on Thanksgiving, too.
