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.
Johnson says Kerrey has not yet made up his mind and reports
that he had decided to run "are not true." Johnson says Kerrey
could announce a decision as soon as Wednesday
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
