Former Sen. Bob Kerrey (D-Neb.) is out with a new ad touting his willingness to put the needs of the country ahead of his own needs and those of his party.
Kerrey's campaign did not release details about the ad buy, but said it would start airing statewide on Monday night. The ad features Nebraskans attesting to Kerrey's independence and fearlessness.
"Bob Kerrey's not afraid of anything," says one supporter, as photographs from Kerrey's younger days scroll across the screen.
"Losing part of his leg, he certainly showed the determination this country really admires and respects," says another.
A former Navy SEAL, Kerrey has been distancing himself from Senate Democrats as he works to reclaim a Senate seat in Nebraska. This is his third round of ads where he does not identify himself as a Democrat, but speaks to his willingness to pursue bipartisan solutions.
