The latest in Nebraska

Sept. 14, 2021

Democrats and Republicans put forward separate congressional maps for consideration in Nebraska’s legislature on Sept. 8, but the Republican proposal is already generating some controversy. That’s because it would split Democratic-leaning Douglas County (where Omaha is located) between two congressional districts and bring some redder counties into the 2nd District, moving the state’s only swing congressional district from its current even partisan lean to R+3. Democrats have already attacked the Republican plan as a gerrymander, with one Democratic state legislator saying that the new district lines “can only be accounted for by partisanship.” The Democratic proposal, by contrast, would leave Douglas County whole and preserve the pure swingy nature of the 2nd District.
