MILWAUKEE (WRN) - We should know by the end of the week whether Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett is in or out of the Wisconsin governor’s race. The chairman of Barrett’s mayoral campaign, Steve Chernoff, says he knows an announcement will come in the next few days – but he still doesn’t believe Barrett has finalized his decision. Democratic Governor Jim Doyle is stepping down after next year – and Congressman Ron Kind and Lieutenant Governor Barbara Lawton have decided not to try replacing Doyle. Democrats from the White House on down have been leaning on Barrett to run. But with 4 kids in Milwaukee schools, Barrett hesitates to uproot his family. And Chernoff confirms that Barrett is thinking about keeping his home in Milwaukee and working there a few days each week if he chooses to run and he wins.
