NPR's Peter Kenyon reports that Senator Bob Kerrey of Nebraska has announced he will not seek a third term. News of his retirement weakens the Democratic hopes of reclaiming control of the Senate. Kerrey, a former Nebraska governor and 1992 presidential candidate, is the only statewide elected official who is a Democrat. All three Congressional seats are held by Republicans.
