Republican incumbent Deb Fischer has retained her seat as one of Nebraska’s Senators over Democrat Jane Raybould and Libertarian Jim Schultz.

At the time of print, Fischer received 58 percent of the votes compared to 38 percent of the votes for Raybould and four percent votes for Schultz, according to The New York Times.

Fischer will be serving her second term in office after becoming the third woman to serve as Nebraska’s state senator and the first woman to serve a full term according to her website.

Fischer plans to continue to fight for limited government and believes the way to achieve that objective is through our national defense as “she is committed to ensuring our men and women in uniform have the resources they need to fulfill their missions around the world,” according to her 2018 campaign website.

She has, for the most part, voted along party lines including voting to approve Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh, the approval of all of President Trump’s cabinet and the ending of net neutrality according to propublica.org.
