"Nebraska's primary is non-binding. County conventions aren't until the first week in June. Delegates for county conventions had to be registered by March 1. Not a lot further can be done at this point."

Hey, I am quoted! That's

Hey, I am quoted! That's pretty cool :)

Im a little confused...

So is this like Missouri's primary in that it really is meaningless...or does the vote matter? and do we have delegates set to attend the conventions?

Nebraska holds a non-binding primary

Delegates are NOT bound by the popular vote in Nebraska. We have delegates going to the conventions..some counties look better than others.

So ..

pretty much next tuesday there really is nothing to look forward to as Oregon mails in their votes and Nebraska's primary does not matter AT ALL..

The county conventions is where to put your focus.

The popular vote in Nebraska is a beauty contest.
