A new ad from Crossroads GPS is targeting Nebraska Democrat Bob Kerrey for his support for the Wall Street bailout of 2008. "Bob Kerrey supported the Wall Street bailout while serving on the board of a company that tried to exploit it," the voiceover reads. Watch the ad below:

"For Bailout Bob Kerrey, it's Wall Street ways, not Nebraska values," the voiceover continues.

The ad comes just days after Nebraska state senator Deb Fischer won a surprising victory in the Republican primary. A subsequent Rasmussen poll showed Fischer 18 points ahead of Kerrey in the general election.
