U.S. Senate candidate Deb Fischer spoke of her own record as a state senator and offered up criticism of President Barack Obama during her brief address at the Republican National Convention in Tampa, Fla.
Not mentioned was her Democratic rival, former U.S. Sen. Bob Kerrey.
Fischer addressed delegates Tuesday at the Tampa Bay Times Forum, saying the "Obama administration has been out of touch with the American people, and they've driven our country towards the edge of a fiscal cliff."
Fischer touted her own eight-year record as a state senator, noting that Nebraska's unemployment rate is half that of the national rate.
She says state leaders accomplished that by cutting spending, balancing the state budget every year and passing "the biggest tax relief package in the history of our state."
