Pro- and anti- Kerrey ads hit Nebraska

(CNN) – Nebraska airwaves are about to get a lot more political. On Tuesday, former Sen. Bob Kerrey announced he was launching two television spots promoting his U.S. Senate bid, the same day the conservative group American Crossroads said it was buying radio time to slam the Democratic candidate.

Kerrey's campaign ads, each 30 seconds long, are positive spots giving voters a picture of Kerrey's campaign platform. In "Step Up," the candidate says: "America needs to step up its game. Our government is dysfunctional, our schools are not performing at world standards, our competitors are stealing our technology and our debt is crippling our future."
