NE LD 31 Caucus Update

So I caucused this morning . Nebraska legislative district 31. We held the thing at a IBEW hall in West O.

1) Kudos to State Senator Rick Kolowski for presiding in an effective manner.
2) Both sides were civil. The Bernie supports skewed younger and were more boisterous.
3) No O'Malley hold-ons, but someone made an attempt to caucus for Elizabeth Warren. They lost after the first alignment.
4) It was close. Basically 53%-47% Sanders out of 650 +/- votes. Absentees broke about 4-1 Hillary, while the room broke about 5-4 Sanders. Hillary won 7 delegates and Bernie won 9.
5) With the exception of the Warren (later Sanders) supporter shouting at Clinton supporters about the speeches/transcripts, both sides stayed positive and civil.
6) The Sanders side broke into a spontaneous singing of America the Beautiful at one point. Both sides applauded.
