Nebraska's U.S. Senate race could be tightening

Posted: Updated:

Nebraska's U.S. Senate race that once appeared headed for a blowout has gotten newfound attention with a frenzy of spending on political ads and some polls showing the race could be tightening.

With less than a week to go before Election Day, Republican Deb Fischer is banking on her association with the state's most popular Republicans. She also has tried to tie opponent Bob Kerrey to President Barack Obama and other national Democrats in the deeply conservative state.

Kerrey is fighting back with a nod to Nebraska's history of electing conservative-leaning Democrats by reaching out to Republican and independent voters.

And between the two candidates is a new rush of ads funded by hundreds of thousands of dollars by outside groups.
