WI-Gov, WI-Sen: Wisconsin is one of the relatively few states that doesn’t impose term limits on its governors, and GOP Gov. Scott Walker is holding out the possibility that he could run for a third term. When asked whether he might challenge freshman Democratic Sen. Tammy Baldwin in 2018, Walker seemingly ruled out the idea, saying, “If I run for anything, it will be for re-election in 2018.” (Walker also noted that former Gov. Tommy Thompson managed to hold that position for four terms.)


While Walker’s presidential bid this cycle somewhat mysteriously failed to go anywhere, he’d be a tough gubernatorial opponent for Democrats, who fell short in two bitter campaigns to unseat him: the notorious recall effort in 2012 and the regular 2014 election. As a result of those two failures, the biggest problem for Team Blue will likely be recruitment, particularly since the Democrats’ bench is now so thin in Wisconsin. Of course, should anti-Trump sentiment make itself felt in two years’ time, that could shuffle the deck, but we also thought that’s exactly what would happen this year.
