Milwaukee Mayor considering another bid for Governor

MADISON (WKOW) --  The Mayor of Milwaukee isn't ruling out another run for governor. Tom Barrett is considering taking another step into the election ring.

Barrett lost to Scott Walker in 2010 and 2012 and in the Democratic Primary against Jim Doyle in 2002.

With such a crowded democratic field for governor, Barrett might be on the fence because of it. There are only nine serious candidates with paid campaign staff. Barrett said he also enjoys his job now as Mayor.

“I've had people approach me saying we would like you to be Mayor. We'd like you to stay Mayor. I've had people approach me saying we'd like you to run for Governor. And I've had people approach me and say we'd like you to move to Tahiti. So it's all over the board. And we haven't made any decisions. I love being the mayor of Milwaukee. I've been doing for some time now and this is where my passion is,” said Barrett.

This would be his fourth gubernatorial bid and nomination papers need to be submitted by June 1.

With time is winding down to get a campaign started, just this week another democrat, radio host Mike Crute announced he will be running against Walker as well.
