By Dee Pettack | April 18, 2022

From WisPolitics.com …Republican Tommy Thompson announced today he won’t run for guv this fall after flirting with a fifth bid for the office he held for 14 years.“This is a very difficult conclusion,” Thompson said. “After a full life of service and leading and growing businesses, I know I have the vision, drive and vitality to serve another term as governor. Wisconsin needs strong leadership to bridge political divides, care for our most vulnerable, set our economy on a path to succeed in the 21st-century, and again make us the shining star of the nation. I would have brought those qualities and commitment as governor.”Thompson, who just wrapped up leading the UW System as president, said he is “open and will continue to investigate how I may otherwise serve.”See the release here.
