Second Gentleman Doug Emhoff meets Omaha Steve and the DU [View all]

Second Gentleman Doug Emhoff was in town to give a speech about women's reproductive health today. I did not attend that event.

The other purpose of the gathering I was at was to pick up yard signs. I got several Biden/Harris signs for my friends and neighbors.

Secret Service would not allow attendees to get out of their car. I did get to shake his hand. We talked about the DU. You bet I mentioned that we raised OVER $2.4 million in 2020 for Biden/Harris. He was impressed. He shook my hand again and sincerely said thank you. I didn't see any TV coverage.

You can see my AFSCME shirt.
