Fischer Joins Nebraska Senate Race

"I'm not naive about that," Fischer told the Lincoln Journal Star in late May. "It will take money. But I think, more importantly, people need to believe in a candidate in order for that candidate to win. I vote for people I believe in and who represent my values." "Today, the Nebraska Republican Party offers yet another under qualified candidate for U.S. Senate with five people currently competing in their 2012 primary," said Jim Rogers, Executive Director of the Nebraska Democratic Party, in a statement. "This gang of five has already made pronouncements they'll cut Medicare, cut Social Security, cut Medicaid, privatize Social Security, impose a national sales of 30% and/or a flat tax that would eliminate the home mortgage and charitable deduction, and raise taxes on the Middle Class. The only question remains how many more will enter this circus show of yammers. As a Republican in today's climate, I would think they would be embarrassed by this showing."
