Ronna McDaniel Refused To Make Needed Electoral Changes In Nebraska

Former Republican National Committee Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel blew off a request for help to make Nebraska’s electoral votes winner-take-all, Nebraska GOP Chairman Eric Underwood said on Wednesday.

In an interview with Charlie Kirk on the Real America’s Voice channel, Underwood said, “I even went to the RNC last year. I had a meeting with Ronna McDaniel and said, ‘I think this is something that’s going to happen … but I need outside help.’ And I was basically told that it wasn’t of much of an importance.”

The political momentum to make Nebraska winner-take-all is being directly attributed to the exit of Ronna McDaniel as RNC chairwoman. Now that she is gone, Underwood stated on The Charlie Kirk Show, “now with what happened over the last 24 hours, and your efforts, and as you were talking with Steve Bannon today, that effort of activating the grass roots have multiplied this a million fold. I could never have imagined this happening.”

Maine and Nebraska are the only two states that use the congressional district method to allocate electoral votes in presidential elections. The method allows them to give two electoral votes to the winner of the state’s popular vote and then one electoral vote to the winner of the popular vote in each of the state’s congressional districts.

President Joe Biden won Nebraska’s 2nd District in 2020, which contains the Omaha metro area. Democrats have won this district twice since 1991, once by Barack Obama in 2008 and again as mentioned in 2020.

The issue is gaining national attention as Trump has the capacity to take northern swing states away from Biden, and if the wins and losses come out just right, a win in Omaha for the Democrats could tie the electoral votes 269-269.

A candidate needs 270 electoral votes to declare victory. If there is an electoral tie, the House and the Senate then must vote for who will be president and vice president, respectively.

On Tuesday, Nebraska Gov. Jim Pillen (R) threw his support behind changing to a winner-take-all system and, in a long overdue moment, encouraged state Republican lawmakers to pass an already introduced bill to finally make it happen.

Democrats have cried foul at this turn of events while simultaneously displaying selective amnesia as they conveniently forget all about how they were instrumental in numerous states changing their election laws to favor Democrat voting in 2020.
