The former Senator has trouble running at home after being in NYC for a decade…..
Republicans outnumber Democrats by 48 percent to 32 percent in Nebraska, where Kerrey was governor before serving two Senate terms from 1989 to 2001. Also, pro-Republican super-PAC attack ads are claiming he forgot his roots after spending a decade in New York City. Further, President Barack Obama isn’t popular here, which also is a drag on his candidacy.
“All taken together, it’s a tough race,” said Kerrey, 68, who lamented that he has been unable to raise much money from the types of donors who get behind an expected victor. “At the moment, it’s not likely that anybody who’s going to contribute to me says: ‘I’m going to contribute to him because I think he’s going to win.’
