(CNN) - Sen. Deb Fischer, who was sworn into her first term just over a week ago, laid out a path for the Republican Party to follow through the debt limit and spending battles ahead in the next few months.
"These hardworking taxpayers are tired of petty 'beltway battles' and they're frustrated with the lack of progress from their elected leaders," the Nebraskan said in her party's weekly address.
(CNN) - Nebraska state Sen. Deb Fischer won the Republican nomination for an open U.S. Senate seat on Tuesday, official results showed, beating two better-funded candidacies for the opportunity to face off against a former U.S. Senator for the open seat in November.
Fischer's upset toppled state Attorney General John Bruning, seen as the establishment candidate, and state Treasurer Don Stenberg, seen as the tea party favorite.
