Kerrey still holding out on Senate run decision 

Former Nebraska Sen. Bob Kerrey says he expects to decide next week whether to run again for his one-time seat.

The one-term Nebraska governor and two-term senator is mulling a bid to replace Democratic Sen. Ben Nelson. Nelson isn't seeking a third term.

Both Democrats and Republicans have acknowledged Kerrey is the Democrats' best hope for retaining the seat.

Kerrey spent nearly a week in Nebraska this month before returning to New York, where he's lived for the past decade.

Kerry ran for president in 1992, but also has a history of considering campaigns he never enters.

Kerry considered another presidential run in 2000. He toyed with a New York City mayoral bid in 2005. And in 2008 he stepped away from a run for Nebraska's last open Senate seat.
