Fischer Surging in New Poll, Releases New TV ad

 Lincoln, NE – Today, the Deb Fischer for U.S. Senate campaign released poll results that show Deb Fischer in a statistical dead heat with Jon Bruning in the Nebraska Republican Primary.

Deb Fischer’s campaign for U.S. Senate commissioned The Singularis Group, a full-service political consulting firm based in Kansas City, to take a live survey on Sunday, May 6th of 400 likely Republican Primary voters in Nebraska’s U.S. Senate race.  The confidence interval for the survey is 95% and the margin of error is +/– 4.9%.

The results are listed below:

Candidate                               Percentage

Jon Bruning                              29.8%

Deb Fischer                              25.6%

Don Stenberg                           18.0%

Pat Flynn                                      1.3%

Spencer Zimmerman                1.1%

Sharyn Elander                           0.0%

Undecided                                 24.2%

“Deb Fischer’s campaign has powerful momentum going into the final week of this campaign.  We have come from over 30 points down in public polls to a statistical tie with Jon Bruning,” said Fischer Campaign Manager Aaron Trost.  “Nebraska Republican primary voters are moving to Deb Fischer because they trust her conservative leadership and know that she is the best candidate to beat Bob Kerrey in November.”

Fischer also released a new television ad “Barbed Wire” that can be viewed by clicking here.

“People are tired of career politicians and are looking for a different type of person to send to Washington D.C.  That’s why Deb Fischer’s candidacy is taking off and the support for our opponents is declining.  Our new ad highlights Deb Fischer’s conservative record and encourages our opponents to cut out the political bull and focus on the issues,” said Trost.
