The governor is up for re-election next year and a local lawmaker is still
deciding whether she wants to challenge him. A new poll released last week surveyed 800 people, with 47% saying they favor Governor Walker. 44% say they would favor democratic Senator Kathleen Vinehout, even though the majority of those surveyed say they did not know enough about either Vinehout or fellow democrat Mary Burke. She says she has what it takes to lead the state.
Vinehout says she expects to make a formal decision early next year.
