Former Sen. Bob Dole has deep personal and political roots in Kansas. He grew up in the small town of Russell.

The former Senate majority leader and presidential contender talks to Alex Chadwick about his attachment to Kansas and his views on the 2008 presidential race.

Dole says this election season is "shakeout time" for the Republican Party. And despite working along side presidential contenders Sen. John McCain and former Sen. Fred Thompson, Dole has not decided who he is backing in the race.
