Henry Sanders announces candidacy for Wisc. Lt. Gov.

Henry Sanders of Middleton (Dane County) has announced his candidacy for Lieutenant Governor of Wisconsin. Running as a Democratic Party candidate, Sanders will offer a geographical distinction over the two other best-known Democratic candidates, State Sen. Spencer Coggs and Ald. Tony Zielinski, who are both from Milwaukee County. I had heard a wish for more geographic diversity on the Democratic gubernatorial ticket, specifically speculation that an all-Milwaukee County ticket may not sell in other parts of the state. With Tom Barrett in the race, Milwaukee is in no matter what.

Good luck to all three, and may the best candidate win.
