Bob Kerrey, Democratic elder statesman and Vietnam War hero, told CNBC on Wednesday he almost feels like a "person without a party" when he listens to some of the views espoused during this year's presidential race.
"I find myself sort of struggling, trying to figure out which party I'm in," said Kerrey, former U.S. senator and ex-governor from Nebraska. A recipient of the Medal of Honor, he unsuccessfully ran for the Democratic presidential nomination in 1992.
"I find myself almost a person without a party," the 72-year-old Kerrey said in a "Squawk Box" interview.
"I align with the Democrats on social issues," he said. "I align with Republicans on economic issues. I worry about national security, and I'm aligned typically with Republicans there. I'm concerned about the environment and align with Democrats on that issue."
