Jimmy Carter's son to run for Senate in Nevada.|
Jack Carter, the son of former President Carter, said Tuesday he plans to run against John Ensign for the U.S. Senate next year.
Carter, 58, and his wife, Elizabeth, have lived in Las Vegas since 2003, operating the investment consulting firm Carter Global.
Carter described himself as "a pragmatist."
"I think the federal government does some things better than the private sector," Carter said.
He said he is a social liberal with conservative Southern roots and a business background that taught him "you pay for what you spend."
