Nebraska U-S Senator Ben Nelson isn’t worried about the state Democratic Party finding a candidate to run for his seat. Several potential candidates put their plans on hold when former Senator Bob Kerrey started looking into the possibility of re-entering politics. He announced Tuesday that he would not seek election.
Now there is concern that his announcement came too late for others to start a campaign. Senator Nelson is not getting nervous about his party and the upcoming election saying the names being mentioned are potential creditable candidates.
Nelson did take one stab at the opposition. He stated, “When you look at the field on the other side is, in my opinion, weak”.
