“Sen. Deb Fischer (R) said Thursday she does not share concerns about the character and conduct of President Donald Trump that were expressed earlier this week by” Sens. Bob Corker (R-TN) and Jeff Flake (R-AZ).

"Those are opinions held by those senators," Fischer said. "I don't share them."

“Fischer said she is not concerned about the veiled political threat made by Steve Bannon, the former White House chief strategist and GOP insurrectionist who has vowed to defeat mainstream Republican senators in next year's elections.” (Lincoln Journal Star)

President Trump recently called Fischer, in addition to Sens. Roger Wicker (R-MS) and John Barrasso (R-WY), to offer his support.
