Tom Nelson Running for Wisconsin Lieutenant Governor
Link to April 28 Appleton Post-Crescent article, "Assembly Majority Leader Tom Nelson gears up for lieutenant governor race".
Excerpt: Assembly Majority Leader Tom Nelson, a Kaukauna Democrat, has registered to run for lieutenant governor.
"I intend to make a (formal) announcement within a couple of weeks," Nelson said Tuesday evening.
Nelson, 34, registered with state elections officials earlier Tuesday. He said registering is one of the first steps in organizing a statewide campaign.
Nelson said he has had conversations with local and state leaders over the last couple of months about a bid for the office. However, he said he has been busy with the recently concluded legislative session, so he waited to focus his attention on this race.
