Tom Barrett Will Run In Recall Election To Replace Scott Walker

March 30, 2012

Game On.   Barrett will face a tough Democratic primary against Kathleen Falk.

In a Friday afternoon email to supporters, Barrett, who has twice run unsuccessfully for governor, announced that he will be making a third bid for the state’s highest office as part of the recall election of Gov. Scott Walker.

“We need to bring our state back,” Barrett wrote in the note. “Wisconsin needs a governor who is focused on jobs, not ideology; a leader committed to bringing our state together and healing political wounds, not pitting people against each other and catering to the special interests.

“This is the governor I will be for the people of Wisconsin.”

Barrett’s top adviser put the matter more succinctly.

“Game on,” the adviser said. “I think we had a sleepy campaign. For a lot of reasons, I don’t think it’s going to be sleepy now.”

    Funny how he says that he doesn’t cater to special interests two days after he took money from lobbyists at a high-profile fundraiser.
