Appearing on Coby Mach‘s Drive Time Lincoln on KLIN radio, both Senator Deb Fischer and 1st District Congressman Jeff Fortenberry say they will vote for the Donald Trump-Mike Pence ticket in November.
Calling in from an overseas (couldn’t say where) trip addressing terrorism, Fischer said that while she did call for Trump to step down and Mike Pence take over the ticket, she is no longer calling for that. Noting that Nebraska GOP Committeeman J.L. Spray called it a “binary choice” in November — either Trump or Hillary Clinton win — Fischer said that “if you want your vote to count you have to vote for one of them.”
She went on to say, “I am voting for the Trump-Pence ticket.”
Prior to Fischer’s appearance, Congressman Jeff Fortenberry also appeared on Mach’s show, in studio. He said that, noting Trump’s statement on the Billy Bush video, that he suggested to the Trump campaign that Trump should make the non-objectification of women a focal point of his campaign and his administration.
He then went on to say that he would tell voters that he is voting for Donald Trump and Mike Pence and that they should too.
You can hear each of the short interviews in their entirety when they are put up as podcasts on KLIN.com later Tuesday evening.
