6/11/11 – Former Governor Tommy Thompson says he will wait until after the series of summer recall elections before making up his mind about a run for the US Senate seat. Thompson has been considering a campaign for the position being vacated by the retiring U.S. Senator Herb Kohl. The Republican is leaving open the possibility he might run for office again, but he is making no official announcements for the next two months. Thompson has hired a consulting firm, Persuasion Partners, Incorporated, which released the statement about his plans for another run for office.
