Democratic and Republican leaders are keeping a close eye on Nebraska's 2008 Senate race.

Former Nebraska governor and senator Bob Kerrey says national leaders have urged him to run, but he says there is no way they can
pressure him.

Nebraska's congressmen _ all Republicans _ say the head of the party's national senatorial committee called them to gauge support for Mike Johanns.

Second District congressman Lee Terry said Senator John Ensign of Nevada asked if the way could be cleared for Johanns on the
Republican side.

Attorney General Jon Brunning, former Omaha mayor Hal Daub and businessman Pat Flynn have said they'll run.

Terry and fellow Nebraska congressmen Jeff Fortenberry and Adrian Smith all said they weren't making endorsements yet.
