NEENAH, WI (WTAQ) - A campaign spokesman says that Wisconsin Senate President Mike Ellis will not run for re-election.
This announcement comes just two days after an undercover video shows the Neenah Republican discussing plans to establish an illegal political action committee.
Ellis was referring to his potential run against Democratic challenger, state Rep. Penny Bernard-Schaber of Appleton.
The recording was done by Project Veritas, which is a non-profit group run by James O'Keefe.
Another topic of conversation in the video was the John Doe probe. Ellis called it, "a blessing in disguise and the Scott Walker is only looking out for Walker."
