Paul Soglin Considers Run for Governor

Yes! Run!

Madison Mayor Paul Soglin, reversing his past disavowals of interest in running for governor in 2018, said Saturday that he is considering a bid for the Democratic nomination to challenge Republican Gov. Scott Walker.

Soglin said in December that he had “interest” in challenging Walker, who is all but certain to run for a third term as Wisconsin governor.

But Soglin said the surprising appeal of U.S. Sen. Bernie Sanders, particularly in Wisconsin, is part of what changed his mind about a potential governor run.
