In the final run up to Election Day, HRC staff and members were among hundreds of people who turned out in Omaha on Friday to hear Bernie Sanders urge Nebraskans to get out and vote for Hillary Clinton for president.

At the event, held at the Metropolitan Community College South Campus in Omaha, Sanders, who challenged Clinton in the Democratic primaries, spoke about income inequality, and the rights of the LGBTQ community, as well as communities of color. He also spoke about the importance of Nebraska's Second Congressional District, and uniting behind Hillary Clinton.

“Bernie’s visit helped solidify the importance of what's at stake in this race,” said Rylee Hall, an HRC supporter who attended the Sanders event. “Following the primary battle, Bernie's support for Hillary demonstrates the unity of the Democratic Party and their willingness to come together to move our country forward.”

Nebraska is unique in its ability to split its Electoral College votes, and Clinton supporters are hoping to turn the Second Congressional District blue tomorrow.

HRC has been working in Omaha,  activating members and supporters to mobilize and #turnOUT the pro-equality vote. They are among HRC members who have been volunteering thousands of hours for endorsed candidates across the country.
