Nebraska Cattlemen Members To Host Events In Support Of Fischer

July 27, 2012


LINCOLN, Nebraska, July 27, 2012 - Individual members of Nebraska Cattlemen will be hosting three fundraising campaign events for Deb Fischer’s U.S. Senate campaign over the next two weeks in Alliance, Lexington and West Point.

For more information about these events please contact the Deb Fischer for U.S. Senate campaign office at 402-742-0084.

Deb Fischer and her husband Bruce are both ranchers and own a ranching business near Valentine. The Fischer family has been recognized for their conservation and environmental stewardship, receiving honors from the Nebraska Natural Resources Districts, Nebraska Cattlemen and the Society for Range Management.

As a member of the Nebraska Legislature, Deb Fischer has earned the reputation of being a champion for Nebraska Agriculture.

That’s why Nebraska Cattlemen members are showing their strong support for Fischer by helping organize campaign events.

Here is what some Nebraska Cattlemen members are saying about Deb Fischer:

“Deb understands the importance of agriculture to the economy of Nebraska and has worked to defend the interests of ranchers and farmers. Her view on a limited federal government which allows private enterprise to thrive appeals to me. Deb’s common sense approach to government is what we need more of in Washington.”
Wayne Crawford
Alliance, NE

“Deb Fischer is a down to earth Nebraska rancher who understands that agriculture is a fundamental driver of our economy. She has worked tirelessly to defend the interests of Nebraska ranchers and farmers, and we have confidence she’ll continue to do so in the Senate.”
Harry & Doris Knobbe
West Point, NE

“Deb is a citizen-legislator who has demonstrated time after time that she is more interested in representing her constituents than advancing any partisan agenda. We need more people like Deb in Washington to fight for Nebraska values.”
Al Svajgr
Cozad, NE

The support of Nebraska Cattlemen members follows other prominent agriculture and business leaders and groups that have backed Fischer’s campaign.

During the Republican U.S. Senate primary, the National Cattlemen Beef Association Political Action Committee provided important financial support to Fischer’s campaign.

Earlier this month, the National Federation of Independent Business, the nation’s leading small business advocacy group, announced their endorsement of Fischer.

And just yesterday, the Nebraska Farm Bureau, the state’s largest voluntary agricultural organization with more than 54,000 members, formally endorsed Deb Fischer in the U.S. Senate race.
