Fischer Scores Endorsement From South Dakota Sen.

Fischer already scored a win for her campaign prior to going into Friday's debate thanks to a big announcement.

U.S. Senator John Thune of South Dakota will campaign for his fellow republican, and appear Saturday in Lincoln alongside her. This endorsement is a positive for Fischer's campaign.

Thune briefly considered a run for the 2012 presidency and was mentioned for months as a possible vice presidential pick for Mitt Romney.
