Rove Calls It: Obama Carries Nebraska District

November 07, 2008

Omaha World-Herald by Robynn Tysver, 11/8/08: "For the first time ever, a blue circle will appear in Nebraska on national electoral maps. Democrat Barack Obama won the Omaha-based 2nd Congressional District on Friday, scooping up one of the state's five electoral votes. Obama won 8,434 of 15,039 mail-in ballots counted Friday by Douglas County election officials. … McCain won the popular vote statewide and four electoral votes. … Obama's win will assuredly spark interest in the split electoral system, which only Nebraska and Maine use. All other states are winner-take-all on electoral votes."

The Wall Street Journal by Karl Rove, 5/8/08: "Mr. Obama…may make an attempt at winning one or two of Nebraska's electoral votes (it awards its electoral votes by congressional district)."
