Lathrop Won't Run for Ben Nelson's Seat

February 13, 2012

State Sen. Steve Lathrop, whose name was floated by Democrats following former Sen. Bob Kerrey's decision not to run for retiring Democratic Sen. Ben Nelson's seat, announced on Monday that he won't run for the Senate either.

"I appreciate the encouragement I have received over the past several weeks from Nebraskans throughout the state," Lathrop said in a statement. "I gave this decision serious thought and based it on discussions with my family and on how I can best serve the people of Nebraska. After much consideration, I have decided to continue to focus on finding solutions to the problems facing our state."

For now at least, Lathrop's decision means the Democratic field features only Chuck Hassebrook, who sits on the University of Nebraska Board of Regents and is the executive director of the Center for Rural Affairs. Hassebrook would be a major underdog against either Republican Attorney General Jon Bruning or Treasurer Don Stenberg.
