As Xoff over at Uppity Wisconsin noted, Lt. Governor Barb Lawton got her gubernatorial campaign off to an odd start yesterday, calling the day “Governor Doyle’s day” before filing her paperwork to become a gubernatorial candidate and then announcing her candidacy for Gov. Doyle’s office. If Lt. Gov. Lawton and her staff really felt yesterday truly was “Governor Doyle’s day,” then why couldn’t they have waited a day to announce her candidacy and file her paperwork?
What’s more, as Harris Kane over at the heartland hollar pointed out, why was Lt. Gov. Lawton was just about the only significant Wisconsin Democrat who didn’t issue a statement regarding Gov. Doyle’s decision not to seek reelection?
