Steve Martin endorses Bob Kerrey (D-NE) for Senate

Source: Omaha World Herald

By Robynn Tysver

Are you tired of cookie-cutter political endorsements? Do you have trouble properly crumbling paper into a ball?

If so, comic Steve Martin has the ad for you.

Martin shot a short web video on behalf of his friend Bob Kerrey, in which the funnyman delivers a less-than-subtle endorsement of the Democrat's U.S. Senate candidate in Nebraska. Martin makes his political pitch, while gently skewering do-it-yourself videos.

The video will not air on television, said Chris Triebsch, Kerrey's spokesman. It will run only on Kerrey's social media sites.

2. As a former Nebraskan, I am amazed at the range of people who get elected in this red, red state

Bob Kerrey seems to be a reasonable man, unlike Mike Johans, the other Senator. They have elected Democratic governors as well in the past who have been pretty progressive.
