Republican United States Senate candidate Deb Fischer has launch a statewide “Thank You” tour in wake of her stunning primary win.
“I’m grateful to the voters of Nebraska. They took a chance on a candidate who is not your usual candidate. I’m not your usual politician,” Fischer told supporters in Lincoln, the first stop on the tour. “They took a chance on a candidate who is both rural and urban. They took a chance on a candidate who grew up in Lincoln, but is a rancher in Valentine. And they took a chance on a candidate who was given no chance to win.”
Fischer travels to Lincoln, Norfolk, South Sioux City and Omaha today. She moves on to Grand Island, Kearney, North Platte and Scottsbluff tomorrow.
Fischer said she learned a lot by traveling the state during the primary election campaign.
“As we travel the state, we hear from citizens all across Nebraska, what they’re concerned about it,” Fischer stated. “And I can tell you, the major concern is the spending that goes on in Washington; it’s the out-of-control spending. Everything else stems from that.”
Fischer said voters will be given a clear choice in November as they decide between her campaign and the campaign of Democrat Bob Kerrey.
