"I'm not naive about that," Fischer told
the Lincoln Journal Star

"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.
