Lawton Is Out, So Is Barrett In?

Another Democrat declines to run for Governor.

First Ron Kind and now Barb Lawton, this is a bit of a surprise.

Wonder if she was nudged at all to drop out due to her (imho) not being a very strong candidate for a variety of reasons.

Was she informed that Mayor Barrett would be running, or is this a move to push Mayor Barrett to run?

This gets curiouser and curiouser with each development.

Btw if Tom Barrett does not run, which I hope he doesn't as I have outlined before, my guess is that Kathleen Falk will emerge as the only viable contender for the Democratic nomination.

That she could not beat out the empty suit J.B. Van Hollen in a Democratic landslide year back in 2006 for the AG slot does raise questions though.
