Who is Deb Fischer?

A “serious conservative, with populist tendencies”:

Folks curious to know just who Fischer is might want to watch a few her debates with her Republican primary opponents—many are available on YouTube. Fischer’s performances reveal a serious conservative, with populist tendencies.

On the major issues, Fischer is a conservative with plenty of Tea Party tendencies. She opposes Obamacare, believes in cutting spending and keeping taxes low, supports a strong national defense, and believes education is best administered at the local level.

But Democrats and liberals will have a hard time casting Fischer, as they did with Sharron Angle, Christine O’Donnell, and other Tea Party Republicans defeated in 2010, as an anti-government nut. Her tone is calm, and her message is, “I’m a leader who wants to get things done.” In pitching herself at a debate in Blair on March 26, Fischer told voters to ask themselves not necessarily who is the most conservative candidate but, “Who’s the conservative who’s been effective?”

    Hmm a conservative “who wants to get things done” sounds like a recipe for a RINO to me but I can withhold judgement until she goes along with the other McConnell RINOs and caves in to the democrats just to “get things done”.

    Yeah, she has pliable RINO written all over her. But she won it, and she does appear superior to the current crop of Senate RINOs, so fair enough.

    You really gotta hand it to that Palin gal. She’s got timing, and knew exactly when to come in on this. A light touch, unobtrusive but telling, and it does appear to have swung things late in the race.
