Democratic superintendent Evers files to run for governor

MADISON, Wis. (AP) _ Democratic state Superintendent Tony Evers has filed paperwork to set up a run for governor.

Evers said Friday that creating a campaign committee is the next logical step to take, but he expects to make a final decision on whether to get into the race ``in the near future.''

Evers becomes the sixth Democrat to create a committee for a potential run against Republican Gov. Scott Walker. The only Democrats so far to confirm they are running are Milwaukee businessman Andy Gronik and political newcomer Bob Harlow. 

Creating the committee ``Tony for Wisconsin'' allows Evers to raise and spend money for a run for governor.

While he says he's undecided, Evers also says in a statement that he would provide a ``unique and different choice for voters'' and offer a ``compelling alternative to the status quo.''
