    In this May 16, 2012, photo, Nebraska state Sen. Deb Fischer addresses supporters with her former opponent, state Attorney Gen. Jon Bruning applauding, right. For Senate Republicans, 2012 is starting a lot like 2010. Republicans have a shot at taking control of the Senate from Democrats as long as insurgent conservatives who are defeating the GOP?s more establishment candidates in primaries don?t frighten off independent voters like they did two years ago. Fischer, a little-known state senator, became the latest unexpected Senate Republican nominee Tuesday, rallying late to upset the favored _ and better funded _ choices of both the party?s mainstream and tea party establishments.
