Deb Fischer, the Republican Senate candidate in Nebraska, is out with her campaign's first general election advertisement. The 30-second ad highlights Fischer's Nebraska values and roots, as opposed to the "out of touch" Bob Kerrey, her Democratic opponent and a former U.S. Senator. Watch the ad below:

With Democratic senator Ben Nelson retiring at the end of his term, the race is a likely Republican pickup. Fischer is ahead in the few general election polls taken since she won the GOP nomination, and, as the ad above notes, Kerrey has the disadvantage of having lived in New York since leaving the Senate in 2001.
