Republican Senate candidate Deb Fischer will stop in North Platte Wednesday on a week-long statewide campaign swing across Nebraska to meet voters.
Fischer will be in North Platte from 8:30-9:30 a.m. Wednesday downtown at the Espresso Shoppe.
She will be at Kimber’s in Stapleton Tuesday afternoon at 2:30 p.m.
Fischer will make 13 scheduled stops on the tour, her first major swing through central and western Nebraska since mid-May, right after she came from behind to win the primary election.
Fischer delivered the keynote address Saturday at the Republican state convention in Grand Island, where she promised to take Nebraska values to Washington if elected.
She said she traveled more than 55,000 miles to meet voters during the primary.
“I’m looking forward to putting a few thousand miles more on my car to visit with old friends and meet many new ones,” she said. “I always enjoy campaigning the Nebraska way — meeting with voters face to face and discussing the issues affecting our great state and country.”
Fischer has represented the 43rd Legislative District in the Nebraska Unicameral since 2004. She, her husbands and three sons operate a cattle ranch near Valentine.
