Lt. Governor Barb Lawton unexpected dropped out to the race for Governor last week. Rumors have been flying like beads at Mardi Gras as to what exactly were the "very personal" reason that forced her to quit. Some said she couldn't raise funds, others questions her health and a shock jock even spewed nasty rumor about her marriage. Most likely she was forced out by the Obama administration who wants Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett to run.
But he hasn't made a decision yet, and if he chooses not to run, the Democrats will be up a frozen creek without a paddle.
