Soglin Announces that he Will Announce Campaign Next Month

So if someone has announced that they plan to announce, haven’t they, in fact, already announced?

MADISON – Madison’s longtime mayor, Democrat Paul Soglin, said Tuesday that he plans to formally launch a campaign for governor in a few weeks, which would make him the oldest of the nine top-tier candidates seeking to unseat Republican Gov. Scott Walker.

Soglin, 72, made the announcement on Twitter and Facebook. He’s been toying with entering the race since June, saying as recently as last week that he planned to launch his candidacy in mid-January, barring an unexpected development.

Personally, I hope he uses his campaign to get the homeless to clean up their act as a campaign plank. I could get behind that.
