Sen. Deb Fischer

A lifelong Nebraskan, Deb Fischer is the senior senator from Nebraska. Senator Fischer was first elected to the U.S. Senate in November 2012, becoming the first Nebraska woman elected to a full term and the first Nebraska state senator elected directly after service in the state legislature. Six years later, in November 2018, Nebraskans voted overwhelmingly to send her back to the U.S. Senate for a second term. Senator Fischer is a senior member on the Senate Armed Services Committee, and also sits on the Appropriations, Commerce, and Agriculture Committees.

Senator Fischer is a member of Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell’s leadership team, serving as counsel to the Republican Leader. Using this position, which she has held since 2015, she presents the concerns of Nebraskans directly to the Republican Senate leadership. She also serves on the Senate Republican Whip Team for the 118th Congress.
