Sen. Fischer responds to Raybould's candidacy

Sen. Deb Fischer

U.S. Senator Deb Fischer (R-Neb.) released the following statement after Democrat Jane Raybould announced her bid for the Senate:

“Nebraskans know me and they know my record of getting things done," Fischer said. "They also know I am their fighter working every day to strengthen our national defense, update our infrastructure, and make life easier for middle class families. I look forward to a robust campaign focused on the issues that matter most to Nebraskans.”

Fischer announced her re-election campaign on June 24, 2017 with a tour of the state including stops in Omaha, Grand Island, Scottsbluff, Kearney, and Lincoln.

Raybould announced on Thursday that she would be running against Fischer for the U.S. Senate.
