Kerrey Defends Residence

When Bob Kerrey (D) registered to vote last month and "listed his sister's address as his home -- swearing under oath that it was his residence -- he fully intended to live there for some time," the Omaha World Herald reports.

A day later, Kerrey said, he "lucked out" in finding his own place when a real estate developer offered to let him live in his guest home.

The AP reports Nebraska Republicans are going to court to challenge Kerrey's voter registration to keep him off the U.S. Senate ballot but the U.S. Constitution requires only that senators be a resident of the state they serve by the time they're elected.
