Bruning, Stenberg back Fischer in race against Kerrey


Fresh off her surprise victory in the GOP senate race in Nebraska, State Senator Deb Fischer addressed the media, Wednesday.

By her side... two of the men she defeated.

Fischer took 41% of the vote in the Nebraska primary beating out Attorney General Jon Bruning, State Treasurer Don Stenberg, and three other Republican candidates.

After sitting third in the polls for much of this campaign season, Fischer rode a wave of support over the past two weeks that put her on the November ballot.

However, Fischer says the win did not catch her off guard. Deb Fischer, U.S. Senate candidate say "It's great to see all the support and excitement and that's going to carry over into tomorrow and we're going to push ahead and start campaigning again."

Fischer downplayed the role a late $200,000 advertising blitz from an outside super PAC... and the impact it might have had in her race against two better-financed GOP opponents. Jon Bruning threw his support behind Fischer today. Jon Bruning, Nebraska Attorney General says, "while we have different approaches we all share a conservative vision. now is the time for us as republicans to unite and work together. we share the same goal defeating Bob Kerrey, defeating Barack Obama in the general election."
