Fulton began his political experience on the Nebraska State Republican Party Convention and in the Lancaster County Republican Party. In 2005, he attended the White House Conference on Aging as Nebraska's delegate.
Fulton earned his B.S. in Mechanical Engineering from the University of Nebraska in 1997, attended Kansas Newman University to study Philosophy and attended Mount St. Mary’s University to study Theology. His professional experience includes serving as the CEO of Guardian Angels Homecare, as the director of sales for Johnston Boiler Company, as an application engineer for Energy Recovery International and as a consultant for Alvine Engineering.
In the 2011-2012 legislative session, Fulton served on this committee:
In the 2009-2010 legislative session, Fulton served on this committee: Appropriations Committee
Fulton's appointment in 2007 placed him in a gray area of the Nebraska Constitution with regards to term limits. The Nebraska Constitution states that senators can serve no more than two consecutive terms, but it fails to specify how a term is defined. Due to the lack of definition, it was initially uncertain whether he served a term from the time of his appointment in 2007 until his re-election in 2008. If the 2007-2008 period counted as a full term, Fulton would be ineligible to run for re-election in 2012. The Nebraska Secretary of State sent a request for a formal opinion on the interpretation to the Attorney General's office. Ultimately, Fulton was termed out, and did not run in 2012.
