BEATRICE – Republican U.S. Senator Deb Fischer is condemning the sending of suspected explosive devices to well-known Democrats. Campaigning in Beatrice Thursday, Fischer said, “it’s horrible what’s happened”.
:14 “has to stop”
Fischer is seeking a second term, running against Democrat Jane Raybould and Libertarian, Jim Schultz. She said she’s always been respectful of colleagues on both sides of the aisle, adding, “we should work together”.
Fischer touted her support from Nebraskans and endorsements she’s picked up. She said a lot of Nebraskans are concerned about trade, but feelings have improved through new agreements with Canada and Mexico.
The Republican said there remains concern about tariffs.
:31 “in manufacturing”
The Republican said there is still optimism fueled by job and GDP growth in the United States.
Fischer says it takes sixty votes in the Senate to get anything done, which means you must establish relationships with all sides.
A big issue in this election is health care…maintaining some elements of the Affordable Care Act, but Fischer says, includes looking at other measures.
:45 “across the board”
Fischer has called for what she describes as “more patient-centered health care”…which she contends will lower costs through a market-driven, more competitive environment.
