Ha, I was thinking the same. I did NOT know about the weird Nebraska rule until it became an issue.
I still think we're closest tho...!
It never occurred to me that it might matter, but I can't claim I didn't know about it. Deist was advocating the idea of using the Nebraska/Maine system to bring the big States back in play... seems like about a year ago, but I don't remember where and I'm no good at searching the new site.
Good job Soz! (I actually got Missouri and Indiana wrong, but they offset.)
