State Sen. Deb Fischer won the Republican nomination in Nebraska’s Senate race Tuesday, upsetting odds-on favorite Jon Bruning in a surprise upset.

Fischer narrowly edged out the state Attorney General 40 to 36 percent with 71 percent of precincts reporting. State Treasurer Don Stenberg received 19 percent and three additional candidates divided the remainder of Tuesday’s vote.

The race had long been regarded as a two-man fight between Bruning and Stenberg– the party’s 2006 nominee. But after months of infighting between Bruning and Stenberg, a Fischer surge occurred last wee and the race’s outcome was thrown into doubt.

Fischer last week announced endorsements from Sarah and Todd Palin as well as Rep. Jeff Fortenberry, and receiving support from AmeriTrade co-founder Joe Ricketts, causing national observers as well as her competitors to take notice. Bruning’s campaign ran an ad attacking both Stenberg and Fischer.

Fischer is now set to face former Democratic Sen. Bob Kerrey, who easily won his party’s nomination Tuesday against token opposition for the seat currently held by retiring Democratic Sen. Ben Nelson. Republicans had viewed the race as one of their strongest pickup opportunities with Bruning as the nominee. Polls also showed Fischer leading Kerrey in hypothetical general election matchups.

Republicans have long salivated over the prospect of capturing Nebraska’s open Senate seat, a triumph that would increase their odds of winning a majority in the Senate and taking full control of Congress.

But the party’s effort to defeat Bob Kerrey, the native son and former senator who returned here from New York to bolster Democrats’ hopes, is taking a back seat to a fiercely competitive Republican primary fight that features a familiar tug-of-war between establishment and insurgent candidates that has become a growing theme in Republican contests across the country.

For months, the state’s attorney general, Jon Bruning, has been seen as the leading contender in the primary, enjoying a fund-raising advantage and the backing of top Republicans here and in Washington. But as the primary approaches on Tuesday, the outcome is far from certain and the contest has become another potential wild card in the battle for control of the Senate, with outside groups feverishly trying to influence the race.

Deb Fischer, 61, a rancher and state senator who is seeking statewide office for the first time, appears to be gaining ground on Mr. Bruning, 43. Her momentum has not gone unnoticed at the National Republican Senatorial Committee, where aides have quietly started to argue that she would be a strong challenger to Mr. Kerrey in a presidential election year in which Republican turnout is likely to be strong in this deeply conservative state.

A clear sign of uncertainty in the Bruning campaign came late last week when it aimed a negative ad at his two opponents, including Ms. Fischer, who is gaining considerable attention in the closing days of the race because of a salty television ad — featuring two Angus bulls named after her rivals — and an endorsement from Sarah Palin.

While the Republican Senate primary here has drawn far less attention than primaries with embattled incumbents in Indiana and Utah, the race has become a magnet for outside conservative organizations hoping to influence the makeup of the Senate next year.

The Club for Growth, a fiscal conservative group, and the Senate Conservatives Fund, the political action committee of Senator Jim DeMint of South Carolina, have invested heavily in television ads questioning Mr. Bruning’s conservative credentials. Both groups are supporting the other Republican in the race, Don Stenberg, the state treasurer who is making his fourth run for the Senate. But party strategists say the attacks have helped elevate Ms. Fischer’s candidacy.

“I’m the underdog, but that is striking a cord with people in this state,” Ms. Fischer said in an interview at her campaign headquarters. “They are tired of sending the same type of guys back to Washington.”

In the final days of the primary race, Ms. Fischer has taken aim at both of her opponents. Her commercial with the two bulls, named “Bruning” and “Stenberg,” asks voters: “Tired of political bull?”

Her message was amplified over the weekend in a new television advertising campaign from a “super PAC” financed by the founder of Ameritrade, Joe Ricketts, an Omaha businessman whose family also owns the Chicago Cubs. The ad shows Mr. Bruning being sprinkled with money and claims that he has profited from his position as attorney general, an accusation he has strongly denied.

Nebraska has never elected a woman to a full term in the Senate. (Eva Bowring was appointed in 1954 to fill the term of the late Senator Dwight Griswold. And Hazel Abel was elected later that year to fill out the final two months of the term.) But the state did produce the country’s first all-woman ticket in the 1988 governor’s race, which was won by Kay A. Orr, a Republican. Today, Ms. Orr is a leading supporter of Ms. Fischer’s, and she helped secure the Palin endorsement.

It remains an open question whether the support of Ms. Palin, the former Alaska governor and Republican vice-presidential nominee, will influence the race. But over the weekend, Ms. Palin left recorded messages for Republicans across Nebraska, urging them to vote for Ms. Fischer and praising her “conservative principles.”

“I was very thankful that the governor was following the campaign,” Ms. Fischer said, adding that she had never met or spoken to Ms. Palin. “She’s seen the momentum.”

The winner of the primary on Tuesday will face Mr. Kerrey, while the winner in November will replace Senator Ben Nelson, a Democrat who is retiring.

The race, along with a handful of others across the nation, will help answer the question of which party will control the Senate in 2013.
