Former state Sen. Tim Cul­len (D) “said Thursday he’s on track for a run to chal­lenge” Gov. Scott Walk­er (R) in 2018. “Cul­len said he was work­ing on lin­ing up the lo­gist­ics of a cam­paign, in­clud­ing launch­ing a web­site and hir­ing staff, so he could an­nounce it some­time be­fore the end of April.”

“Cul­len, of Janes­ville, has been trav­el­ing the state for months with the in­tent of run­ning for gov­ernor in 2018. He has been the most pub­lic about his de­sire to run against Walk­er, al­though sev­er­al oth­er Demo­crats are also con­sid­er­ing it.”

Cul­len “was one of the 14 Demo­crats who fled to Illinois in an at­tempt to block Walk­er’s anti-uni­on le­gis­la­tion” in 2011. (AP)
