Secretary of State Doug La Follette expects to soon announce that he will run as a Democratic candidate for governor in the expected June 5 recall election for Republican Gov. Scott Walker. In a March 21 Newsmakers interview, La Follette said Wisconsin's progress on health care, the enviroment and voters' rights has been reversed in the last year under Walker and Republican lawmakers. Although La Follette has lost past campaigns for higher office, he said he would be the "peoples" candidate. Two other Democrats, former Dane County Executive Kathleen Falk and State Sen. Kathleen Vinehout, are already running for governor, which is expected to force a primary for the Democratic nomination on May 8.
