Kerrey Sells Omaha Home
OMAHA (AP) - Former U.S. Sen. Bob Kerrey has sold the Omaha house he purchased during his unsuccessful 2012 campaign to return to the Senate. Kerrey bought the house in the Memorial Park neighborhood for about $220,000. Kerrey, a Democrat, lost the Senate race to Republican Deb Fischer, and his family soon moved back to New York City, where Kerry had spent 12 years as president of The New School. Kerrey says he was renovating the house. It sold recently for $395,000. Kerrey had to fight persistent criticism during last year's campaign about returning to Nebraska with some Republicans labeling him a liberal carpetbagger and an opportunist.
