The Krist Conversion

Omaha, NE.–It’s Bob Krist’s first full day on the campaign trail as a Democrat running for governor.

During yesterday’s kickoff Krist described himself as a “happy Democrat.”

But just days ago he was an independent and five months before that a Republican, a party badge he had worn for many years.

News Channel Nebraska’s Joe Jordan takes a closer look (see exclusive video above) at the Omaha State Senator’s political conversion.
