Senator-Elect Deb Fischer (R-NE)
The conservative Republican rancher and congressional representative from Valentine, Nebraska fought a tough race for an open seat against former senator and presidential candidate Bob Kerrey, who was plumping for a comeback. Her win -- one of the few Senate seats the GOP picked up in 2012 -- made her the first woman senator from Nebraska since 1954.
