Lawton to run for Governor in 2010?

She says she will, if Doyle doesn't:

Lt. Gov. Barbara Lawton tells The Associated Press she will run for governor in 2010 if Gov. Jim Doyle decides not to seek a third term.

Doyle has not said whether he will run again but he continues to raise money as if he is.

Lawton said Monday that she believes Doyle is undecided. She says he has not told her whether he will run again.

But Lawton says she "absolutely" will run for governor if Doyle ultimately decides not to go for a third term. She says she is undecided on whether she would run as his lieutenant governor for a third term if he seeks re-election.

The 56-year-old Lawton says she is in the early stages of preparing for a potential run for governor.
I can't decide whether that's a good thing or not.
