Omaha, NE – A UNO political scientist says Senator Ben Nelson's announcement is an opportunity for the state Democratic party to find new leaders.
Nelson announced Tuesday he won't seek a third term in the U.S. Senate. UNO political science professor Randy Adkins says he was surprised by Senator Nelson's announcement, given that the filing deadline for the 2012 race is three months away.
