Fischer Election Night Party Begins
Supporters of Republican Senate candidate Deb Fischer began filling into the Cornhusker Hotel’s Grand Ballroom just after 7 p.m.
While many grabbed a drink and hors d'oeuvres and mingled around the room, Stephen Akers, 16, watched closely as the presidential election results rolled in on his laptop.
“I’m a political junkie,” he said.
His prediction for the Senate race: Deb Fischer, by at least five points.
Akers first became interested in politics in the seventh grade, and was most recently a volunteer on the Stenberg campaign back in May’s Republican primary election.
“But now I’m Fischer all the way,” he said.
Nebraska Republican Chairman Mark Fahleson told the crowd the event would kick-off at 8 p.m.
“And if you haven’t voted yet, get out of here and go vote,” Fahleson said, laughing.
Representatives Jeff Fortenberry and Adrian Smith are also expected to appear at the event.
“We still have volunteers calling from the Republican headquarters here in Lincoln,” Fahleson said. “Enjoy your time this evening and we’re going to celebrate a great victory.”
