Wisconsin Gov. Doyle Will Not Seek Re-election

Democrat Jim Doyle has announced that he will not seek a third term as governor of Wisconsin. We’ve followed Doyle for his 2008 plan to tax oil companies while blocking their ability to pass on increased costs to the consumers, and for his budget this year that included a proposal to restore full joint and several liability to the state. Both plans foundered as politically risky, and in the case of the oil tax, as unconstitutional.
