MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- Madison Democratic Mayor Paul Soglin says he's considering challenging Gov. Scott Walker next year when the Republican is expected to seek a third term in office.
Soglin told the State Journal Saturday the surprising appeal of U.S. Sen. Bernie Sanders in Wisconsin convinced him to rethink a gubernatorial run.
Soglin said in December he wasn't interested in challenging Walker and previously thought a liberal from Madison would have a difficult time winning statewide. Soglin did not say when he would make a decision.
Other Democrats who are in the mix for a possible gubernatorial run include former Democratic Party of Wisconsin Chairman Matt Flynn, Milwaukee businessman and political newcomer Andy Gronik, and state Rep. Dana Wachs, of Eau Claire.
