Campaign Connection 2020

NET News

Campaign Connection 2020 is the home for NET News coverage of the 2020 elections. The nation will be focused on the race for the White House with the candidates for president. Nebraska voters will also choose their representatives in three U.S. House and one Senate race. There are local, state and national races that will affect all of us for years to come. 

Campaign Connection 2020 provides you with the resources to inform those decisions. You'll find on this page our election-related Signature Stories, as well as links to national media coverage, podcasts and political party blogs. 

Also this year, NET News and Harvest Public Media will be reporting as part of the national Election 2020 America Amplified project that aims to raise the voices of those we don't always hear from in diverse communities across the nation. 

Follow Campaign Connection 2020 from NET News across television, radio, social media and this website. We'll deliver the information you need to make responsible voting decisions.
