Source: Omaha World Herald

By Chris Burbach

People of color played a major role in awarding the electoral vote from Nebraskaís 2nd Congressional District to President-elect Joe Biden.

Thatís shown in the vote totals of Omaha City Council districts in North and South Omaha, traditional indicators of Black and Latino voting.

Biden defeated President Donald Trump by almost 12,000 votes in North Omahaís Ward 2, accounting for more than half of Bidenís winning margin in the 2nd District. The North Omaha council district went 79% for Biden, his largest margin in Omaha.

Biden won by almost 4,000 votes in South Omahaís Ward 4 and by more than 11,000 votes in Ward 3, which includes parts of South Omaha as well as midtown and downtown neighborhoods.

2. We can thank people with drive, like Ernie Chambers for doing the long haul gruntwork ...

... from years ago till today!

Ernie Chambers

Ernest William Chambers is an American politician and civil rights activist who represents North Omaha's 11th District in the Nebraska State Legislature. Chambers is the longest-serving state senator in Nebraska history, having represented North Omaha for 46 years.

He's almost single handedly got the NE legislature to pass a law rescinding the capitol punishment in NE but the Governor vetoed it.
