Deb Fischer for U.S. Senate Highlights Support by ShePAC


Wednesday, April 18, 2012 -
Today, Deb Fischer’s campaign for U.S. Senate highlighted its support by ShePAC, a political action committee dedicated to electing more conservative women to Congress.

ShePAC is highlighting Senator Fischer as one of five Republican women who will help Republicans take back the majority in the U.S. Senate and put an end to liberal Harry Reid’s days as Majority Leader.  ShePAC kicked off its support of Senator Fischer by featuring her in a video, which can be viewed by clicking here.

“This is another example of the powerful momentum for Deb Fischer’s campaign and we are gaining important support when it matters most,” said Fischer Campaign Manager Aaron Trost.   “Our campaign has built a dynamic grassroots organization and we have won the last two GOP straw polls by wide margins.  As more and more people pay attention to this race, it becomes very clear that Deb Fischer is the best candidate who will beat Bob Kerrey and fight for Nebraska in the U.S. Senate.  Senator  Fischer is not a career politician; she’s a wife, mother, rancher, small business owner and citizen legislator.  That’s why she is the strongest candidate in this race.”

Deb Fischer Wins Sarpy Republican Women Straw Poll!

Deb Fischer Wins Sarpy Republican Women Straw Poll!

Wednesday, April 11, 2012 – Today, Senator Deb Fischer’s campaign for U.S. Senate announced a decisive victory at last night’s straw poll at a forum held by the Sarpy Republican Women.

Sarpy County is a key county in the Nebraska U.S. Senate race. It is the third most populated county in Nebraska and includes the cities of Bellevue, Papillion, La Vista, Gretna, Springfield and portions of Omaha.

Senator Fischer’s victory in the straw poll was a major development that demonstrates her campaign’s organizational strength and effective grassroots network, as her opponents have significant ties to Sarpy County.  Attorney General Jon Bruning represented a legislative district in Sarpy from 1997 to 2002 and Don Stenberg currently resides in Gretna.

Results from the Sarpy Straw Poll:

Deb Fischer 58 (46%)

Jon Bruning 32 (26%)

Don Stenberg 22 (18%)

Pat Flynn 12 (10%)

Others 0 (0%)

“Once again, Senator Fischer has won a key straw poll by a wide margin in a battleground county.  This demonstrates that our campaign for U.S. Senate has outstanding strength at the grassroots level and unshakeable momentum going into the last month of the campaign,” said Fischer Campaign Manager Aaron Trost.  “Moreover, Jon Bruning and Don Stenberg both have longtime ties to Sarpy County, but they still finished in a distant second and third respectively.  Last night’s results tell me that the voters who know them best are looking for other options.  Nebraskans are fed up with career politicians and they are looking for someone who hasn’t spent their entire life in politics to represent them in the U.S. Senate.  That’s why Deb Fischer will win this race.”

Last night’s straw poll win continues the strong momentum for Senator Fischer’s campaign for U.S. Senate.  In late March, she won the Washington County GOP Straw Poll and Debate with 58% of the vote.  Also, Senator Fischer released her first TV ad earlier this week and recently received a key endorsement from Maggie’s List, an organization dedicated to electing more fiscally conservative Republican women.
