Timing of Emanuel Fundraiser for Barrett Stokes Gov. Race Speculation

February 17, 2012
If Barrett does end up running for governor, he'll be able to transfer funds over from his mayoral campaign account, so long as he amends his campaign finance registration with the state Government Accountability Board, GAB spokesman Reid Magney said. Barrett faces minimal competition in the mayoral race, virtually guaranteeing his reelection. "I suppose anybody likes to have money in their reelection account even if it is five days before the election, but it's well-timed if there is a gubernatorial campaign," said Marquette University visiting professor of law and public policy Charles Franklin. Earlier this week, Barrett appeared alongside Democratic Rep. Tammy Baldwin, who is running for Senate, to blast Walker over his handling of funds from the state's foreclosure settlement. Barrett's performance led the left-leaning Madison Capital Times to encourage him to enter the gubernatorial race. If Barrett decides to run, he'll be on a collision course with former Dane County Executive Kathleen Falk , who has already announced that she will take on Walker. Falk is the preferred choice of organized labor (with whom Barrett has a frosty history), and she received the endorsement of EMILY's List on Thursday. A primary between the two could get ugly, potentially weakening the eventual nominee for the general election fight with Walker.
