Thompson: 'I'll Make a Decision Tonight'
MILWAUKEE - Former Wisconsin Governor Tommy Thompson tells TODAY'S TMJ4 HD Reporter Mick Trevey that he'll make a decision tonight about whether he plans to run for Senate.
Thompson has been weighing whether to run against Wisconsin Senator Russ Feingold this fall.
When asked if he's leaning against a run, Thompson told us, "depends on what part of the day."
"I'm going to make a decision tonight and so far I'm still tussling with it. I know I can win. There's no question in my mind I can win. That's not a factor," Thompson said. He continued, "Do I want to serve for six years? My family does not support it. So I'm weighing all those decisions."
Earlier, a source who spoke with TODAY'S TMJ4 HD's Charles Benson said Thompson is leaning against a run.
Thompson is set to announce his future at a "tea party" rally in Madison on Thursday.
Thompson told Trevey, "Nobody knows for sure what I'm going to do tomorrow except me and I don't even know. So you can get all your advice from my advisers all you want."
Thompson is expected to speak at a "tea party" rally at the state capitol on Thursday. The rally will happen outside of the capitol building from 11:30AM - 1PM. The rally is being organized by the group Americans for Prosperity.
