Democrats hoped Nebraska’s Senate race would be the story of Kerrey’s political revival. Instead, the emergence of Republican Fischer, a previously little-known state senator, has given the GOP its clearest shot at taking a U.S. Senate seat away from Democrats. Less than two weeks until the election, Fischer enjoys a clear lead. (AP Photo/Nati Harnik, File)
