A new TV ad from Democrat Bob Kerrey, who is running for his old Nebraska Senate seat, welcomes the former senator home:

The ad may be an effort to remind voters of Kerrey's Nebraska roots, since after leaving the Senate in 2001, Kerrey worked for 10 years as president of the New School in Manhattan. The state is much more conservative and Republican than it was when Kerrey won his last statewide election in 1994, and there's no mention of the Democratic party in the ad at all. A recent poll showed Kerrey far behind his potential GOP opponents.
