June 18, 2010 at 4:25 AM (PT)
CUMULUS Talk WOSH-A/OSHKOSH, WI morning host JONATHAN KRAUSE has filed paperwork to run for WISCONSIN State Assemblyman this FALL, reports the OSHKOSH NORTHWESTERN, which says that KRAUSE will be running as a Republican against incumbent GORDON HINTZ for the 54th Assembly District seat and filed his paperwork on JUNE 11th.
On his blog, KRAUSE said that the paper is "mostly correct" but that while he is "certainly interested in running... this is just the beginning of a process to becoming an official candidate. Think of it as 'forming an exploratory committee.' Nobody can run for a public office like that without assembling a huge team of volunteers and without raising enough money to drown out the special interest groups and their attack ads. And if I'm going to give up my job (required for broadcasters looking to get into politics), it would behoove me to make sure that I am getting in there with a fighting chance."
