Kerrey Can Appear on Nebraska Ballot

Former Democratic Sen. Bob Kerrey can appear on the Nebraska Senate race ballot, the Nebraska secretary of state announced on Friday. But just like Sen. Richard Lugar, politically, he'll still have some explaining to do in the campaign. The Lincoln Journal Star:

Nebraska Secretary of State John Gale ruled Friday that Bob Kerrey did not meet the state's statutory terms of required residency at the time he filed as a Senate candidate, but his candidacy is valid under terms of the U.S. Constitution.

Kerrey's name will appear on Nebraska's May 15 Democratic primary ballot, Gale said.
"This situation was complicated by Mr. Kerrey's candidacy filing right before the deadline and right after filing two voter registration forms with different addresses within 24 hours," Gale stated.

Kerrey, who moved to New York City in 2001 to accept the presidency of New School University, attempted to re-establish legal residency in Omaha quickly before meeting the filing deadline.
