Crossroads on air against Kerrey in Nebraska

Kerrey, who was recruited by Democrats to help hold retiring Sen. Ben Nelson’s (D-Neb.) seat, ran unopposed in his primary.

The ad accuses Kerrey, who served on the board of an insurance company that tried to access bailout funds, of trying to exploit the bailout for financial gain.

“For Bailout Bob Kerrey, it’s Wall Street ways, not Nebraska values,” says the narrator in the ad. “Tell him: Support balanced budgets, not bailouts.”
