Deb Fischer

Political Party: Republican

Race to Watch: U.S. Senate in Nebraska

Family Life: Married to Bruce Fischer, Deb is mother to three sons, Adam, Morgan and Luke.

Resume: Deb Fischer’s interest in education, conservation and revitalizing Nebraska’s economy are just some of the reasons why we think Fisher is one to watch in 2012. She surprised many when she won a hard fought primary against two better-known (and more conservative) GOP opponents. Insiders say she has a good chance of beating former Senator Bob Kerry, who was once considered Nebraska’s favorite son.
