Info
A lifelong Nebraskan, Deb Fischer knows about hard work, strong communities, and the Nebraska way of life. Born and raised in Lincoln, Nebraska, Deb attended the University of Nebraska-Lincoln and graduated with a B.S. in Education. Deb and her husband Bruce have been married for over 39 years and own a ranching operation near Valentine. On the farm, they raised their three sons, all of whom have returned to live and work on the family ranch. The Fischer family has been recognized for their conversation and environmental stewardship, receiving honors from the Nebraska Natural Resources Districts, Nebraska Cattleman and the Society for Range Management.

Wanting to improve education in rural Nebraska, Deb got involved in leadership in local and statewide education associations. She was elected to the Valentine Rural High School Board of Education, became President of the Nebraska Association of School Boards and served as a commissioner on the CCPE. In 1999, Deb was honored with the Nebraska Association of School Boards Lifetime Achievement Award and the Nebraska Rural Community Schools Association Outstanding Board Member Award.

In 2004, Deb was elected to the Nebraska Unicameral to represent the 43rd Legislative District. She currently serves as Chair of the Transportation and Telecommunications Committee and is a member of the Revenue Committee and the Executive Board

In the legislature, Deb has a conservative voting record of keeping taxes low, reducing wasteful spending and protecting family values. She has a strong interest in school finance/aid issues, water policy, economic development for the state, and natural resources issues. Her major legislative initiatives deal with these issues, as well as proposals to improve transportation funding.

Recently, Deb led to make the lifeblood of Nebraska’s communities – its roads –
an important priority for Nebraska’s future. She led passage of LB84, which will direct a portion of Nebraska’s sales tax to fund new roads throughout Nebraska. Deb’s work was praised as “an achievement that has evaded other state officials for too many years” by the Lincoln Journal Star.

Because of Deb’s tenacity and effectiveness as a legislator and her love for our state, many Nebraskans from across the state have encouraged her to run for the U.S. Senate seat currently held by Sen. Ben Nelson. On June 28, 2011, Deb Fischer announced her candidacy for U.S. Senate throughout communities all across Nebraska. Her campaign will be focused on revitalizing our economy, supportin
