(Neb.)-As Senate Debates Loom, Kerrey Seeks To Narrow Gap
OMAHA, Neb. (ASSOCIATED PRESS) - So far, Bob Kerrey's bid for a Senate comeback hasn't been much of a comeback at all.
With a national pedigree, a measure of celebrity and a long relationship with Nebraska voters, Kerrey was supposed to give Democrats a real shot at holding on to the seat being vacated by retiring Sen. Ben Nelson.
Instead, Kerrey trails badly in the polls as he heads into a pair of key debates. His opponent is previously little known GOP state Sen. Deb Fischer.
Democratic strategist Chris Lehane says Kerry's facing a difficult environment because Nebraska's a deeply Republican state. He says that any Democrat, no matter their name, would struggle to win in the state.
