U.S. Senate candidate makes final rounds before Primary PDF Print E-mail

Deb Fischer is seeking the Republican nomination in the Nebraska U.S. Senate race, and was in Imperial Sunday where she met a number of area residents. Above, she greets Kevin Poppe of Grant at the home of Mark and Kathy Christensen, who hosted a coffee in her honor. Christensen, in the background, serves in the Nebraska Unicameral with Fischer, who represents District 43 in northern Nebraska, the largest of the 49 districts in the state. She said her district is the same size as New Jersey, so the long distances she has traveled in her campaign are nothing new to her. Fischer said now that the legislature has adjourned, she has been “going hard” in her travels across the state to meet residents before next week’s Primary Election. Prior to her stop in Imperial Sunday, she was in Hastings and McCook and planned to travel on to Sidney, Scottsbluff, Alliance and North Platte for stops early this week. Fischer, who bills herself as a conservative leader, also cites her experience as a wife, mother, rancher, small business owner and school board member in seeking next week’s Republican nomination. Tuesday’s Republican winner will advance to the November General Election to face the Democratic nominee. (Republican photo)
