That’s why many who respect Neumann are going to urge him to drop out. When the Republicans hold their state convention this weekend, Walker will unveil an endorsement list that looks like a Republican Hall of Fame. His campaign is planning an overwhelming presence at the convention. It’s their hope Neumann will recognize what he’s up against and bow out. Scoop: former Gov. Tommy Thompson is very likely to endorse Walker this summer, a move that will more than neutralize the backing Neumann is getting from Thompson’s former top aide, Jim Klauser.What does TOMMY!!! say? Stick it to 'em:
Former Health and Human Services Secretary Tommy Thompson is considering a run for Wisconsin governor.
Thompson told 12 News that he’s currently looking for other candidates to step up before he throws his hat in the ring.
The revelation comes one day after Scott Walker announced his intention to run for the seat.
Thompson offered Walker his best wishes -- but stopped short of endorsing him. He said he looks forward to other Republicans entering the race.
