UNDATED (WTAQ) Three Democrats who thought about running for governor in the Walker recall election gave their support today to Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett. State Senators Tim Cullen of Janesville and Jon Erpenbach of Middleton joined La Crosse Congressman Ron Kind in endorsing Barrett – who announced his gubernatorial bid last Friday and won four more years as Milwaukee’s mayor yesterday. During a news conference, Barrett lashed out at Republican Scott Walker, who defeated Barrett by five points in the last election for governor in 2010. Barrett said Walker started a civil war throughout the state last year with his proposal to virtually end collective bargaining for most public unions. And Barrett promised he would unite Wisconsinites again. Three other Democrats are also running with Barrett in a May eighth primary – and Barrett said the biggest mistake they can make is to attack each other.
