Kohl: Thompson Candidacy Would Be Interesting

Dem. Sen Herb Kohl says a potential race against Tommy Thompson would be "interesting." But he’s confident in his record and is going to run on his accomplishments regardless of who he faces.

Thompson, who rejected a run for governor last month, has been pondering a bid against Kohl. Polls have suggested the race would be close.

"Every day, we do something that’s good for the people of this state," Kohl said. "I do not take it for granted."

Kohl used his Saturday morning address to delegates to delegates to stress the importance of retaking the national government for the Democrats in 2006 and 2008.

Kohl said the continued failures of Republicans at the highest levels of government necessitated a change. He said that years of irresponsible tax cuts and tilting bills to corporate interests has finally made the public aware of Republican mismanagement.

"We know now we have to take back the Congress, and we have to take back the presidency," Kohl said. "It’s unfortunate, it’s sad, it’s not something to exalt over, but it’s something we have to resolve."
