Baldwin still weighing run for Kohl's Senate seat
WAUNAKEE, Wis. (AP) — U.S. Rep. Tammy Baldwin of Madison says she still hasn't decided whether she'll run for the Senate seat that fellow Democrat Herb Kohl is vacating.
Baldwin said Thursday she's giving the idea serious thought, and plans to decide sometime down the line. She calls Kohl "irreplaceable."
Her comments came as she toured a Waunakee senior center with House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi.
Kohl has said he won't seek a fifth term next year. His announcement prompted a flurry of speculation in both parties over who might run to replace him.
On the Republican side, U.S. Rep. Paul Ryan said he won't run but associates of Tommy Thompson say the former Wisconsin governor might give it a try.
Possible Democratic candidates include former Sen. Russ Feingold and Rep. Ron Kind.
