Politics: Nebraska’s Bob Kerrey on changing mind: “I feel good about the decision.”

  • Kerrey changes course towards Senate run: The former Senator had served from 1989 to 2001, before deciding he wouldn’t seek a third term. Rumors had been swirling for the last couple months as to whether he would jump back into the political fray, following the retirement of Ben Nelson, and though he initially shot down such talk he seems to have thought better of it. “It was a difficult process but I feel good about the decision. I look forward to the race,” he said. Though the seat is generally thought to be an easy pickup for the GOP this year, one would imagine Kerrey saw some positive numbers to sway his decision, reluctant as he seemed at first — this now becomes a must-watch Senate race. source
