MADISON, WI (WTAQ) - Former Wisconsin Assembly Speaker Mike Sheridan wants to return to the Legislature.
He announced his Democratic candidacy Sunday for the Senate seat that's being given up by Tim Cullen of Janesville.
Sheridan was a United Auto Workers' union leader in Janesville when he was elected to the Assembly as a Democrat in 2004. He served in the lower house for six years, the final two as speaker.
After being defeated in 2010, Sheridan has been a lobbyist for the state AFL-CIO.
There are two other Democratic candidates so far -- Assembly Democrat Janis Ringhand and former Cullen campaign manager Austin Scieszinski.
