With election day less than a week away, candidates running for a U.S. Senate seat are pulling out all of the stops.

Three republican candidates are duking it out this week over a television campaign ad approved by candidate Jon Bruning.

State Senator Deb Fischer called a press conference on Friday to discuss an ad that attacks her record. While Fischer calls the ads negative, Bruning's campaign manager says the information presented in the commercials is factual.

Fischer said "They're negative ads, they're false ads, they're misleading ads but I believe they came out because I'm doing very well in the polls. People are responding to my positive message."

Trent Fellers manages Bruning's campaign. Fellers said
"The ads are 100% factual. Deb Fischer and Don Stenberg have been attacking Jon Bruning for months and these ads are about their records."

Don Stenberg's communications manager, Dan Parsons, provided us with an email statement. The email message reply states "The latest TV ad from Jon Bruning attacking both Don and Sen. Fischer shows he is desperate and knows his one time lead has collapsed. The ad also makes clear that Don is the only candidate who has not voted for a tax increase. Because he is the genuine, lifelong, proven conservative in this race, Don Stenberg is in a position to win on Tuesday and take on Bob Kerrey this fall."
