Former U.S. Herb Kohl is about to endorse @WISuptTonyEvers in the Democratic primary for governor, one of the bigger endorsements so far.

That's BIG, but it doesn't surprise me. Evers is a powerhouse in Wisconsin.

I wonder if Evers will try to convince Vinehout to run in the LG primary as sort of a unity non-Madison/Milwaukee-based ticket. I think they'd be well-balanced geographically.

That would be an interesting choice, and would absolutely neutralize Walker's talking points.
*snip* I wonder if Evers will have access to any of that sweet sweet Herb Kohl money.

I highly doubt it since Dan Kohl is running a pretty competitive congressional campaign against Grothman.  That's probably the priority for the Kohl family this cycle.

You know Herb is personally worth several hundred million, right... I think he could drop a lot in two places.

Evers has to be the favorite right now, if only because Wachs and Vinehout share a regional base, and Wachs just got endorsed by Dave Obey.

Evers really should probably point out to Vinehout that she probably has no chance in the primary and get her to run as his LG. She'd help him balance the ticket with a woman and she's from a key part of the state.

I agree, plus the WI GOP can't attack them very well for being "muh liberal Madison elitists" and Democrats don't want to have a super competitive primary. Imo Evers is my personal favorite and also the favorite to win the nomination. I think he would be a stronger GE candidate than Vinehout.

Wait, is the Obey endorsement supposed to be a negative or am I reading this wrong...?

I quite like Wachs, but Evers definitely looks to be the frontrunner.
