Senate Race Shifts from Residence to Health Care

To date, the focus on the differences between GOP nominee Deb Fischer and Democrat Bob Kerrey in Nebraska's U.S.

Senate race has largely been over Kerrey's 10-year residency in New York and Fischer's cut-rate grazing fees on federal land.

That focus changed Thursday with the U.S. Supreme Court's decision upholding the vast majority of President Barack Obama's health care overhaul. Nowhere does the 2010 law stir more controversy than in Nebraska, whose outgoing Democratic Sen. Ben Nelson provided the final vote needed to see it to fruition. And Kerrey and Fischer couldn't be further apart in their stances on the law.

Kerrey mostly supports the law, although he'd like to see changes made to it. Fischer wants the entire law repealed.
