Bob Kerrey has purchased a home in Nebraska.
The Democratic U.S. Senate candidate who registered to vote in Nebraska a day before he filed for office said Wednesday that he purchased a home in central Omaha at 415 N. 61st St. It's not far from the Dundee-Memorial Park-area home he had when last he lived in Nebraska.
He says he paid $225,000.
Kerrey has lived for the past 12 years in New York City. He returned home in February and filed to run for office, listing a guest house of a supporter as his official residence.
He has been shopping for homes for several months and briefly considered a condo downtown.
His Republican opponent in the race, State Sen. Deb Fischer of Valentine, owns a ranch in Cherry County.
