MADISON, Wis. (AP) _ A legislator making a longshot bid for governor says he's planning to have someone in a chicken suit follow Democratic gubernatorial hopeful Mary Burke around.




Rep. Brett Hulsey, a Madison Democrat, announced Monday he'll enter the race. Three other Democrats are vying for the party's nomination, including Burke, Hariprasad Trivedi and Marcia Mercedes Perkins. Burke, a former Trek Bicycle Corp. executive, is the clear front-runner.




Hulsey on Tuesday challenged Burke to a debate in each of Wisconsin's 72 counties. He says he expects Burke will decline. Then he plans to have a volunteer in a chicken suit and T-shirt that reads ``Too Chicken to be Governor'' follow Burke around wherever she goes.
