Former Dane County Executive Kathleen Falk is “technically” the first to enter the race to replace Scott Walker as Governor of Wisconsin(Tim Cullen is supposedly also running). Here is her introduction to the race.
I really like Kathleen Falk and think she would do a great job. If you took a blind test comparing her record as Dane County Executive to Scott Walker’s record as Milwaukee County Executive, Kathleen Falk wins hand down. Unfortunately it is not a blind test and Walker is willing to spend millions to lie and distort his record. They will try and portray her as a “Madison Liberal” so that will be something that she will have to overcome, but that will be the talking point whoever ends up being the candidate. I will wait and see who all jumps in before I endorse, but I do think that Kathleen Falk deserves consideration.
On to the Primary.
