Kathleen versus Kathleen? State Senator Kathleen Vinehout has modified her campaign registration statement with the Government Accountability Board to indicate her intention to run for governor, WKOW reports.
The Alma Democrat, who’s in her second term in the Senate, says she may have an announcement next week. The news comes just after another state Senate Democrat, Janesville’s Tim Cullen, announced his decison not to run, citing indifferent support and fundraising challenges.
Should Vinehout decide to declare her candidacy, she’ll join former Dane County Executive Kathleen Falk, who’s the only announced candidate in the race to find a recall opponent for Governor Scott Walker.
