Nebraska State Senator Deb Fischer has picked up a big-name endorsement in her bid for the Republican nomination for U.S. Senate.
Alaska Governor and Vice Presidential candidate Sarah Palin is endorsing Fischer's bid.
Former presidential candidate Rick Santorum announced last week that he was endorsing state Attorney General Jon Bruning for the Republican nomination.
Senator Rand Paul has endorsed State Treasurer Don Stenberg.
Also on Republican primary ballot are Schuyler businessman Pat Flynn, Omaha native Spencer Zimmerman and Lincoln resident Sharon Elander.
The GOP nominee will be chosen in next week's primary election and likely face Democrat Bob Kerrey at the polls in November.
