Nice guys don’t run
Democratic insiders believe Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett will decide not to launch a campaign to be Wisconsin’s next governor, and some say Gov. Jim Doyle is “shopping” for another candidate to challenge Barbara Lawton for the party’s nomination.
Lawton, who is Wisconsin’s lieutenant governor, picked up her most impressive endorsement yet Monday, when former Democratic Party of Wisconsin state chair and congressional candidate Matt Flynn announced he will support her bid for governor.
Unless Doyle pulls a Favre, or someone with real deep pockets suddenly emerges, Lawton is in the driver’s seat for the nomination.
By the way, there is no truth to the rumor that Governor Doyle is building a UFO-shaped balloon with a door big enough to hold a lieutenant governor.
Update! Tom Barrett is Brett Favre.
