Obama Keeps On Winning
Posted on Nov 9, 2008
Two states, Nebraska and Maine, have rules that call for splitting their electoral votes by congressional district. Now, for the first time in the modern era, one has done so. Barack Obama has won one of Nebraska’s five electoral votes, according to the Omaha World-Herald. (Maine’s four votes went to Obama on Election Day.) The president-elect’s total now stands at 365.

Democrat Barack Obama won the Omaha-based 2nd Congressional District on Friday, scooping up one of the state’s five electoral votes.
