Via Politico: “Tommy Thompson, the Republican former Wisconsin governor and George W. Bush’s first HHS secretary, has told friends he plans to run for the open Senate seat in Wisconsin. Sen. Herb Kohl (D-Wis.) said Friday that he won’t seek a fifth term in 2012. Thompson’s announcement gives Republicans a popular former two-term governor of state to seriously challenge for this toss-up seat.”

Paul Ryan isn’t going to run for US Senate in WI.

I’m not surprised Trump isn’t running for President, and I’m also not surprised Huckabee isn’t running because he’s making more money than ever before working a Fox.

I still believe Huntsman’s simply positioning himself for 2016, and I’m still waiting for Palin or Bachmann to join the fray.

This is going to be fun political theater.
