Barrett says governor's race decision coming
MADISON (AP) -- Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett told WTMJ Radio in Milwaukee that he will make a decision on whether to enter the governor's race as a Democrat by the end of the week.

The radio station says in a story on its Web site that Barrett made the comments Tuesday during an interview. Barrett tells the station that he will reach a decision by the end of the week "one way or another."

The Democratic Party is without any major candidates for governor after incumbent Gov. Jim Doyle decided against seeking a third term and current Lt. Gov. Barbara Lawton dropped out of the race.

Barrett met last week with President Barack Obama's top political strategist and has been under increasing pressure to run. Madison businessman Kevin Conroy is also considering running as a Democrat.
