Nebraska Republicans are rallying around Valentine state Sen. Deb Fischer, the winner of a tough U.S. Senate primary race for a seat targeted by national party leaders.

Fischer won endorsements Wednesday from Gov. Dave Heineman as well as her two top primary opponents, Attorney General Jon Bruning and State Treasurer Don Stenberg. Fischer will square off in November against Democratic candidate Bob Kerrey, a former U.S. Senator and Nebraska governor.

Fischer emphasized her rural roots and legislative experience during a press conference at the state party headquarters in Lincoln.

The 61-year-old has served 8 years in the Legislature.

Kerrey has touted his experience and ability to work across party lines.

The 68-year-old is barnstorming the state Wednesday with stops in Omaha, South Sioux City, Lincoln, Grand Island and Scottsbluff.
