Good Morning, news just came out of Madison that WisPolitics.com reported that Lt. Governor Barbara Lawton has dropped out of the race for Governor for personal reasons. This is a big shocker that has affected the Wisconsin Democratic Party. Now, the party is scrambling for a candidate for Governor for their party in the 2010 elections. The news comes days after the Washington Post reported possible major divisions in the DNC after throwing Virginia Democrat nominee Creigh Deeds under the bus over a lackluster campaign.
Still, there has been no word if Tom Barrett will be running for Governor. Later today, I will have up about the impacts of the news in Virginia and with Barbara Lawton could be a big boost for outgoing Governor Jim Doyle.
