Sly and John Nichols Expect Tom Barrett to Announce Run for Governor Today

This morning on the WTDY's Sly in the Morning, John Nichols and host John "Sly" Sylvester speculated, based on unnamed sources,  that Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett would announce his run for governor this afternoon.

Why today?  Because today is when the Governrment Accountability Board is expected to certify the recall election.  And today is a Friday:  Barrett wants to quietly enter the governor's race and mitigate the awkwardness of also having a mayoral election next Tuesday.
