Senator Deb Fischer was born and raised in Lincoln, Nebraska and graduated from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln. She and her husband of 43 years own a ranching operation. They have three sons.
Senator Fischer was first election to the United States Senate in 2012. Prior to her run for Senate, Deb Fischer served for eight years in the Nebraska Legislature. In the Senate, she is a co-sponsor of the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act, legislation that would stop late-term abortions after 20 weeks, more than halfway through pregnancy, a point when science shows unborn children can feel pain. Fischer has consistently opposed taxpayer funding of abortion and worked toward defunding Planned Parenthood, the nation’s largest abortion business, which aborts more than 328,000 unborn children and receives over half a billion dollars in taxpayer funding each year.
