Wisconsin: Sole Democratic victor in 2012 recalls running for LT Governor
State Senator John Lehman, who beat Van Wanggaard in the only Democratic victory in the 2012 recalls, announced that he will be running for Lieutenant Governor in 2014. Lehman, who lost to Wanggaard in 2010, may have good reason to jump into the race. 1. His name recognition is probably at its highest (due to the recall) and more importantly 2. His district was basically blown up in the redistricting/gerrymandering. It is now very Republican.
