In an exclusive on camera interview with Nebraska Watchdog, Council wonders how many of her voters—caught up in the ongoing poll closings controversy— didn’t get to cast a ballot for her; she’s less interested in how many potential voters Chambers may have lost.
Chambers, who held the 11th District seat in north Omaha until he was term limited to the sidelines four years ago, won the primary by 147 votes, 53-47 percent.
Council expects a bigger turnout on Election Day. While 2,839 votes were cast in the primary, on Election Day in 2008 nearly 11,000 votes were cast in the district.
Chambers, who was not available for an on camera interview, tells Nebraska Watchdog he expects “the same” results in November because he’s “never lost” a Senate race.
