The Associated Press is reporting Lt. Gov. Barbara Lawton (D-Hollywood) will run for governor if Governor Jim Doyle does not run for re-election. These are the kinds of stories used to scare children.
"Eat your vegetables Johnny or Barbara Lawton will run for governor."
"Bill, stop scaring the children so much. Tell them about the Bogeyman instead."
I'm surprised the governor doesn't use that type of approach in his fundraising appeals.
"Unless you guys raise $20 million by Friday, Barbara Lawton will run for governor."
Talk about blackmail.
