OMAHA, Neb. — For the 12th consecutive election, a Republican presidential candidate is victorious in Nebraska.
Mitt Romney claimed at least four of the state's five electoral votes on Tuesday, with only the one tied to the 2nd Congressional District still in question. President Barack Obama won that by a single vote in 2008.
The polls closed across the state after election officials reported long lines but no major problems as voters also chose between Democrat Bob Kerrey and Republican state Sen. Deb Fischer in a U.S. Senate race that seemed to tighten at the end.
The ballot also included re-election bids by all three of Nebraska's GOP incumbents in the U.S. House, 26 of the Legislature's 49 seats and measures dealing with hunting and fishing, legislator pay, term limits and impeachment procedures.
