Local news reporter Joe Jordan posted this on his blog earlier today:
Several sources now tell me Scott Kleeb is running for the Senate, and will make his announcement soon (maybe Monday).
That will set up a primary fight between Kleeb and Columbus businessman Tony Raimondo. As I've said before that's a primary fight the Democrats need if they have any chance of beating Mike Johanns in the fall.
It's too early to say right now, but we might know very soon. This is great news for Nebraska Democrats. Our efforts to Draft Kleeb may have paid off. Sorry for the brief diary. Thought you all should know.

More from the AP:
Democrat Scott Kleeb is expected to join the race for U.S. Senate next week.
A source with knowledge of Kleeb's plans said the Hastings resident has decided to run.
On Wednesday, Kleeb would say only that he'd made a decision and would have an announcement on Monday.
The source spoke on condition of anonymity because Kleeb hasn't made his announcement yet.
