MADISON, Wis. (AP) — Assembly Minority Leader Peter Barca says he won't run for governor so he can focus instead on winning back Democratic control of the Assembly.
Barca posted a letter on his Facebook page Saturday saying he appreciates the support he has received from residents ahead of a recall election to replace Gov. Scott Walker. But he says he's focused on a different front.
Barca says it's important to take back the governor's office in a recall election in the next few months, but also to achieve majorities in the state Assembly and Senate. Republicans control the Assembly 59-39-1.
The state elections board officially declared Friday that enough signatures have been submitted to order recall elections against Walker and five others.
Four Democrats have already declared their intent to run for governor.
