Kerrey and Fischer on the campaign trail days from the Election
We are now just three days away from Election Day and Nebraska's U.S. Senate Candidates are making their last stops in the Tri Cities.
News 5's Lauren Conley caught up with Democratic Candidate Bob Kerrey, who stopped in Hastings Saturday.
With election day closing in, Bob Kerrey is focusing on voters.
"Be as honest as you can and be as direct as you can and tell people what it is you can do," said Kerrey. "Don't worry about winning or losing."
Republican candidate Deb Fischer made a stop in the Tri Cities on Friday.
"I have support all across this state that people are excited, they're motivated, they know this is an important election and they are out there working hard to get me elected," said Fischer.
They both have a core group of supporters, but how do they motivate those undecided voters? Focus on key issues.
"The central promise is to work with Republicans to balance the budget, you have to start and cut spending," Kerrey said. "You can't sign a pledge that locks you in. You can't promise to be a reliable vote for your caucus."
But, Fischer is blaming Democrats for a lack of action.
"The senate has not even passed a budget in the last three and a half years," Fischer said. "I believe Harry Reid is the cause for much of the grid lock that we're facing in Washington."
Regardless of who's to blame for the gridlock in Congress, both want to see action.
"That farm bill that passed the Senate is a very good bill and we need to get it across the lines," Kerrey said.
Fischer agrees the House and Senate need to work together on this.
But, Kerrey is campaigning on his bi-partisan values.
"Look, if you want somebody to go back and fight to change Washington, I'm your guy," Kerrey said. "If you want somebody that's going to be part of the status quo, then don't vote for me because I'm not promising to be part of the status quo."
In these final days, every last campaign stop and every last handshake may count.
Saturday is the last time Kerrey will be in the Tri City Area before the election.
Fischer is making one last stop in Grand Island Sunday.
