Washington lawmakers are on summer break, and many are back in their home district.
U.S. Senator Deb Fischer, of Nebraska, spent her Friday morning in Norfolk, Nebraska at a "listening session" with voters.
The conversation centered around foreign policy.
Fischer said that there needs to be leadership from the Obama administration.
"Because if we don't there will be a vacuum there," "I talked about that today, we're seeing a vacuum in leadership in this world. I think that has lead to a lot of the unrest and a lot of the violence that's happening around the world," said Fischer.
