Former Nebraska U.S. Senator and Governor, Bob Kerrey announced today he will not return home next year to run for the U.S. Senate with Sen. Chuck Hagel retiring. Kerrey chooses to remain President of The New School in NY. That pretty much hands the seat back into the GOP's hands, with U.S. Secretary of Agriculture Mike Johanns (R), a former Governor, running for the seat. Nebraska Attorney General Jon Bruning is also running in the Republican Primary. Democrats's only hope now is that Omaha Mayor Mike Fahey runs for the seat. That isn't likely, so move this into the Safe GOP Hold collumn.
