All the candidates are now on the clock with just three full days left until Election Day, Nebraska’s second district is still in play. 

Eight months ago Senator Bernie Sanders won the Nebraska Democratic caucus.

He returned to Omaha campaigning for Hillary Clinton and it was an overflow crowd with people waiting outside to listen to Sen. Sander speak like he was running for the job again.

Sanders spoke at 8:30pm at the Metro Community College South Omaha campus talking about the Dakota Access Pipeline, raising the minimum wage, free college and tuition. He also spoke about the importance of Nebraska’s 2nd district.

"My own gut feeling is that it will be very very close and I want you all to put into your minds the possibility that it may come down to one electoral vote, the electoral vote in this district,” said Sanders.

Many people at the event are hardcore Sanders supporters but now say they are supporting Clinton—because they don’t want Trump in the white house.

“It took a lot of time to come around for the idea of Hillary Clinton to be the Democratic candidate when we were so die-hard Bernie fans. It was really disappointing—it was only recently that we came around,” said Shelby Lanning

Sanders is criss-crossing the country campaigning for Clinton.
