Nebraska Senate Poll: Kerrey Way Behind
1:24 PM, Mar 7, 2012 • By MICHAEL WARREN
Former senator Bob Kerrey, a Democrat from Nebraska, may be regretting his decision to change his mind and run for his old Senate seat, given this latest poll from Rasmussen showing him behind his possible Republican opponents by double digits:
Kerrey was governor of Nebraska from 1983 to 1987, and he later served in the Senate from 1989 to 2001. After leaving Congress, Kerrey moved to New York City to serve as president of the New School, a progressive university. Nebraskans may not appreciate that Kerrey has spent his post-Senate career away from his home state--or perhaps he's been away so long he's become an unfamiliar name and face.
