Former President Donald Trump’s voter fraud claims failed to move voters in Nebraska as the candidate he endorsed for governor lost the Republican primary and a top elections official who pushed back against the false claims won. 

Agribusiness executive Charles Herbster, who was photographed at the former president’s “Stop the Steal” rally next to My Pillow CEO Mike Lindell, was defeated in the gubernatorial primary by University of Nebraska Regent Jim Pillen.
