Cap Times: Barrett “doesn’t rule out run for governor”

While I think very highly of Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett, I like him right where he is: in the mayor’s office. Of course it’s his right to pursue a bid for governor if he so wishes. Barrett has a real record to point to, both in Congress and in the mayor’s office. He’s been a fine administrator of our city government. And a real hero. I suppose he’d make a good governor. I’m still on the fence as to whether I’d like him to give it a shot. But why not? What’s he got to lose?
