Deb Fischer Posts Big Win at Washington County GOP Debate and Straw Poll!

Tuesday, March 27, 2012 – Today, Senator Deb Fischer announced an overwhelming victory at last night’s Washington County GOP Debate and Straw Poll, which was the largest GOP straw poll held in Nebraska this year.

Throughout the debate, Senator Fischer discussed her life experiences, conservative leadership and vision for Nebraska’s future.  Voters responded to her strong debate performance, as Senator Fischer won 58% of the votes cast.  The results are listed below:


Deb Fischer 46 (58%)

Pat Flynn 17 (22%)

Don Stenberg 13 (16%)

Jon Bruning 3 (4%)

“I am incredibly pleased and humbled by the overwhelming support I received at the Washington County GOP Debate and Straw Poll.  Our victory in that contest shows the voters aren’t looking for another career politician and that’s why my candidacy is resonating with Nebraskans,” said Senator Fischer.  “My campaign has strong momentum because I have been traveling the state, visiting with Nebraskans and organizing at the grassroots level across all 93 counties.  That’s how we will win this race for U.S. Senate in the primary and general election.”

Last night’s straw poll win continues the strong momentum for Senator Fischer’s campaign for U.S. Senate.  Last week, she received the endorsement of Maggie’s List, a national organization dedicated to electing Republican women.
