Election News

Republican nominee Deb Fischer says she is ready to take on former Democratic Sen. Bob Kerrey this fall in a closely watched Nebraska Senate race.

Reached at her celebration party in Lincoln, Fischer eschewed any suggestion that the win caught her by surprise. She says she knows how to work hard because she's a Nebraskan.  Fischer received 41% of the votes, compared to John Bruning's 36% and don Stenberg's 18%.

She acknowledged that the general election race could get bloody. She calls the race the "focus of the entire nation" and thinks it will get "interesting."
