No Governor’s Run for Erpenbach

Seriously, was the only person who though Jon Erpenbach had a chance was Jon Erpenbach?

Democrat Jon Erpenbach will not run for governor and will instead seek re-election to the state senate.

With Gov. Jim Doyle not seeking re-election, Erpenbach, of Waunakee, had considered a run for the office. But Erpenbach said he would be unable to commit to it fully because he needs to spend time with his two teenage children.

“It’s going to be huge,” Erpenbach said of the 2010 governor’s race. “This is going to take a tremendous amount of national attention from both sides and it’s going to take someone who can be extremely focused and not have other issues that they’re going to be dealing with.”

‘Not have other issues that they’re going to be dealing with,’ that’s the kind of eyebrow-raising statement which makes guys like me stand-up and wonder if something’s about to hit the fan against Erpenbach.  I personally doubt that, though his pushing of “Healthy Wisconsin” again would be political suicide — even in Wisconsin.  No, Erpenbach’s like way too many Wisconsin legislators, roar one minute and a milquetoast when the really tough decisions come their way.  So he’s not going to do something rash which would cost him his ever-so-safe State Senate seat, short of the old “dead girl/live boy” scenario of course.

No, Jon Erpenbach is a God only in his own mind and the fiefdom of suburban Madison he inherited from Feingold in which he rules.
