When, Senator, will you finally stand up for the United States and say that President-Elect Biden and Vice President-Elect Harris have won the election? When will you, Senator, publicly renounce Mr. Trump’s fallacious claim of election victory? When, Senator, will you publicly announce your support for the rule of law and the elected officials in every state? When, Senator?
Fairness: Do the math
Gov. Pete Ricketts was reported in the World-Herald Dec. 1 as favoring a one-candidate-take-all Electoral College system for our fair state. Under existing rules, Nebraska allots its votes minimally proportionally, with one vote going to the winner of each congressional district, and two more going to the winner of the state as a whole. Thus, in the 2020 election, four votes were allotted to Donald Trump and one to Joe Biden, who won the 2nd District, where most of the voters live in or near Omaha.
