One of the Nebraska Democratic Party's newest offices is just blocks from Republican Senate candidate Deb Fischer's home in Valentine.
The Cherry County seat seems an odd place for Democrats to seek votes, since Republicans hold more than a four-to-one edge in registered voters in the county.
But state Democratic Party Executive Director Jim Rogers says it's simply proof that his party will compete for votes in all parts of the state.
He says that's especially true given the importance of the Senate race between Democrat Bob Kerrey and Fischer.
Fischer's campaign manager Aaron Trost responded to the office in Fischer's hometown by noting that until a few months ago, Kerrey lived in New York.
Trost says, "The Fischer campaign doesn't plan on opening an office in New York City."
