(10/25/13) State Senate Democrat Kathleen Vinehout says it's still "doable" to win the governor's race next year, even though she'd have to beat two very well-funded opponents.
The lawmaker from Alma says she'll spend the next six weeks talking to people around the state about her possible chances -- and she'll make a decision by early next year. Some Democratic groups are not waiting. They're getting behind Mary Burke now, so she can have time to round up enough money to challenge the heavily-funded Republican incumbent Scott Walker. Burke got major endorsements this week from Russ Feingold's Progressives United, and Emily's List -- which spent five-million-dollars last year to help U-S Senate Democrat Tammy Baldwin get elected.
