La Follette running for re-election

Secretary of State Doug La Follette announced this morning he will seek re-election next year.

La Follette, the only Dem to currently hold one of Wisconsin's five partisan constitutional offices, has held the post since 1975 except for one four-year term he missed after unsuccessfully running for lt. guv in 1978.

La Follette closed his speech by making the announcement. But he hinted at his plans in opening his speech, saying he thought he had set some kind of record with the duration of his time in office.

"If not, I have some plans for the future to make sure about that," La Follette said.

La Follette recounted how past guvs have pulled responsibilities from his office, saying those outside Wisconsin are confused about why they have to go to a Department of Financial Institutions for information when other states house those responsibilities in the secretary of state's office.

“We need to return those important business functions back to the secretary of state’s office. It’s not about Doug La Follette. It's not about me. It's about what’s best for Wisconsin’s future."
