Kerrey Will Run for Senate

Former Sen. Bob Kerrey (D-NE) announced today that he would run for U.S. Senate, "setting the stage for a competitive election year in Nebraska as Democrats fight to retain the seat and Republicans battle to take it back," the Omaha World Herald reports.

"Kerrey acknowledged that his thought-making process may have been unconventional -- he initially said he was out, then said he was in -- but he ultimately decided he wanted to be a part of the national debate."

Said Kerrey: "Doing things the conventional way has never been my strong suit. This afternoon, I will file to become a candidate for the United States Senate in Nebraska. I came to realize that my previous decision was the easy one, not the right one."
