Candidates and Issues - Nebraska US Senate - Deb Fischer

Republican U.S. Senate candidate Deb Fischer has represented the 43rd Legislative District in the Nebraska Legislature since 2004.

If elected, Deb Fischer would be the only rancher in the United States Senate.

As a state senator, Fischer has earned a reputation of being a commonsense conservative problem solver. Fischer helped pass the largest tax cut package in state history, balanced the budget eight times, and cut millions of dollars in wasteful spending. Her record of producing results has won her admiration from Nebraskans on both sides of the political aisle.

Last legislative session, Fischer introduced and led the successful passage a bill to fund the lifeblood of Nebraska's communities–its roads. Fischer's work was praised as "an achievement that has evaded other state officials for too many years" by the Lincoln Journal Star.

In her U.S. Senate campaign, Fischer has proposed a bold and detailed agenda to shrink the size of government, empower small businesses, and get the economy back on track.

She supports fully repealing Obamacare and passing commonsense, market-based reforms to lower health care costs and increase competition.

To reduce our nation's debt and ensure government lives within its means, Fischer supports a Balanced Budget Amendment and reforming the nation's tax code.

Born and raised in Lincoln, Fischer attended the University of Nebraska-Lincoln and graduated with a B.S. in Education. She has been married to her husband Bruce for over 40 years and they own a ranching business near Valentine. Together they have raised three sons, all of whom have returned to live and work on the family ranch.
