This past election, Nebraska’s Second Congressional District, which includes Omaha and most of the metro, gave their electoral college vote to Joe Biden. It was the first time it went blue since 2008.
Now one Republican state senator wants to change the system, giving all the state’s votes to the statewide winner.
“I think that going back to the winner take all system gives all Nebraskans a say in how we distribute all five of our electoral college votes and is structurally a more sound system,” said State Sen. Julie Slama.
It led to President Donald Trump visiting Omaha just a week before the election.
