MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- Democratic state Sen. Kathleen Vinehout says she's still considering a run for Wisconsin governor, and businesswoman Mary Burke's entry into the race hasn't changed her plans.
Burke, a former Wisconsin commerce secretary and Trek Bicycle executive, declared her candidacy Monday. Vinehout says she will make a decision early next year about whether to run.
Vinehout says she has been talking to voters and many want input on choosing a Democratic candidate to run against Republican Gov. Scott Walker. She says she thinks some good ideas could come out of a primary.
Vinehout also says she thinks the state needs a woman governor and she wishes Burke the best.
