MADISON, Wis.| Democratic U.S. Rep. Tammy Baldwin is moving closer to announcing a bid for the U.S. Senate, telling a Madison newspaper in a story published Tuesday that she is “likely to run” for the seat being vacated by retiring Democrat Herb Kohl.
A number of Republicans and Democrats have expressed interest in running for the seat since Mr. Kohl announced in May that he would not seek a fifth term. Former Democratic Sen. Russ Feingold, frequently mentioned as a possible candidate, has said he will make his intentions clear by Labor Day.
Former Republican Gov. Tommy Thompson said he will announce his decision after recall elections this summer targeting state senators. The last of those elections is Aug. 16.
Mr. Pawlenty’s campaign says Sarah Huckabee Sanders begins today as the former Minnesota governor’s senior adviser for the state’s Republican straw poll.
The Aug. 13 event at Iowa State University is seen as a test of strength for Republican presidential candidates ahead of the leadoff caucuses, set for early February.
Mr. Pawlenty has spent a year and a half meeting Iowa Republicans and building a circle of top Iowa consultants, but registered only 6 percent in a recent Iowa poll.
State move delays primary until April
PROVIDENCE | Rhode Island has moved its presidential primary from March to April in an attempt to attract more candidates to the Ocean State.
State lawmakers voted for the change to match primary dates in New York, Pennsylvania and Connecticut. Lawmakers say presidential candidates are more likely to visit Rhode Island in the lead up to the primary if the state holds its primary on the same day as those nearby states.
