The Nebraska Legislature redistricted the 2nd Congressional District after the 2010 Census numbers were released last year.
Paul Landow, Professor of Political Science at UNO, says the Legislature flip flopped Sarpy County voters.
He says formerly the Eastern part of South Sarpy County, which had more Democrats, was part of the 2nd Congressional District. The Western part of that county held more Republicans and was part of the 1st Congressional District.
Incumbent Third District Congressman Leonard Boswell and his Republican challenger, Fourth District Congressman Tom Latham, debate at 7pm Thursday at Iowa Western Community College. The debate is sponsored by Iowa Public Television.
