OMAHA, Neb. — A Democratic campaign consultant says former U.S. Sen. Bob Kerrey is reconsidering his decision not to run for Nebraska’s open U.S. Senate seat this year.
Paul Johnson once served as Kerrey’s campaign manager. He said Monday that Kerrey told him he was again considering running for the seat now held by outgoing Democratic Sen. Ben Nelson.
Kerrey announced earlier this month that he would not run for the Senate seat after weeks of speculation. It was not immediately known why Kerrey was reconsidering that decision.
Kerry was also a 1992 presidential candidate and former governor of Nebraska.
