Almost 40,000 people turned out for Nebraska’s first Democratic caucus and with a resounding voice, proudly declared Sen. Barack Obama Nebraska’s Democratic choice.

“Numbers from across 98 percent of the state’s precints showed Illinois Sen. Barack Obama with 68 percent of the vote and 25,887 supporters to Hillary Clinton’s 32 percent and 12,347 voters.”

At one point, the caucus  area in Sarpy county exceeded building limits due to huge turnout of Sarpy county voters which triggered traffic backups for miles, complaints from voters and delayed the start of the caucus. One caucus officials said when they closed off registration, there was still traffic backed up to get in along Highway 370.
