    Rep. Ron Kind is interested. I've heard him say as much. But he doesn't want a primary.

    Others alleged to be interested are Peter Barca, Jon Erpenbach, David Obey, and Kathleen Falk. Maybe Barrett too, but he'd have to run a heck of a lot better race than he ran last time (he seemed to concede outstate to Walker).

    Mere passive citizenship is not enough. Men must be aggressive for what is right if government is to be saved from men who are aggressive for what is wrong. - Robert M. LaFollette

      He recently signed on to a letter from Republicans and Blue-dogs urging the Super Committee to cut "entitlements".   As far as I'm concerned he's DOA as a candidate for Governor.
