Republican U.S. Sen.-elect Deb Fischer says she and her husband, Bruce, plan to go apartment hunting in the Washington, D.C. area sometime next week.

Fischer was elected Tuesday to replace Democratic Sen. Ben Nelson, who opted not to seek a third term. She handily defeated Democratic rival Bob Kerrey, a former Nebraska governor and two-term U.S. Senator. Kerrey was also a 1992 Democratic presidential candidate.

Fischer, who will be sworn in as Nebraska's newest U.S. Senator in January, said her Washington digs will not be anything fancy.

She said she'll probably settle for a one-bedroom apartment, much like she has had in Lincoln while serving in the Nebraska Legislature for the last eight years.
