Every day talking heads and politicos identify a new crisis that our great country is facing. While our nation’s problems seem to multiply daily, one underlying principle unites them: A crisis of character.
A recent Nebraska newspaper headline read “Senate race bottom line: character.”
Many voters have come to share this sentiment as they have had the opportunity to evaluate the candidates over the last several months.
As I have talked to Nebraskans from Scottsbluff to Falls City, I have received affirmation that State Senator Deb Fischer of Valentine is Nebraska’s best opportunity to send a senator of strong conviction with conservative pro-life values to Washington, D.C. this November.
Sen. Fischer has many distinguishing qualities: She is a wife, mother, rancher, small businesswoman and citizen legislator. During her time in the Nebraska Unicameral, she passed character and leadership tests with flying colors. Her statesmanship has led some to characterize her as a public servant in the vein of the great Virginia Smith.
Once asked about her success, Virginia Smith said: 'There is no excellence without great labor.' Deb Fischer shares this philosophy, and it’s time for Nebraska to send a senator to Washington who will roll her sleeves up and work hard to represent Nebraska’s commonsense conservative values. Please join me in supporting Deb Fischer for U.S. Senate on May 15.
