A Surge for Underdog Kerrey?

American Crossroads is set to start airing ads in support of Republican Deb Fischer in Nebraska today, as at least one poll shows a tightening Senate race.

Like underdogs in Massachusetts, Missouri, Pennsylvania, Ohio, and Florida, former Sen. Bob Kerrey, D-Neb., can now cite public polling that shows he is closing. A poll for the Omaha-World Herald showed Kerrey trailing Fischer by three points on Sunday.

That apparent surge, driven by ads attacking Fischer, comes after months in which Kerrey was counted out amid double-digit deficits. The Washington Post's The Fix upped Kerrey's odds on Tuesday. But like the leaders in those other states, Fischer remains favored.
