Looks like Barb is throwing her hat in the ring:

An aide says Democratic Lt. Gov. Barbara Lawton is planning to run for governor next year.

Lawton aide Ben Nuckels says the two-term lieutenant governor intends to run for the state’s top job and “will have more to say about that in the near future.”

Important information to look for: how much money does the LG have on hand? How does it stack up compared to potential opponents. One thing to keep in mind is that although Rep. Ron Kind has about $2 million in the bank, he is not allowed to use most of it for a state race. Also, something nobody has been talking about – who’s going to run for lieutenant governor now, on both sides?

    Lawton has roughly $50k cash on hand. If Barrett were to run, he’s got a little over $800k cash on hand, while Rep. Kind would only be able to convert roughly $41k from his federal campaign to his state campaign.
