A Madison man for governor?

October 30, 2009

Looks like the Dems might have found another candidate to match up with Scott Walker.

A relative and informal adviser confirmed that Kevin T. Conroy, president and chief executive officer of Exact Sciences Corp., is considering a run.

Doyle said Conroy, whose company is seeking to commercialize a cancer-screening technology, is a “really remarkable” guy.

“He has been a really creative and effective business person in this state and, you know, it will be up to him to make his decision on what he wants to do. But he’s a person who has really accomplished a lot at a young age,” Doyle said.

You gotta admit, he’s very studly. Almost more so than Scott Walker (but obviously no match for Mark Neumann). The cancer-screening technology and innovation card would work well with the electorate, especially if he were running against a career politician (as cliché as the charge is) like Walker. Who’s a bigger hero? The man who’s curing cancer or the guy who saved the grandma from a drunk? Now that would be a primary worth watching.
