Vinehout out of governor's raceSubmitted: 01/17/2014
Story By Associated Press

ALMA - A potential candidate for governor dropped out of the race this morning.

State Senator Kathleen Vinehout says she won't seek the Democratic nomination for governor.

In a statement, Vinehout says the severity of the injury she received in a car accident last month makes it impossible to mount a grass roots campaign.

Vinehout says the broken bone in her upper right arm requires time for recovery and rehabilitation.

Vinehout, of Alma, had been exploring a possible run until the car accident.

That leaves former Trek Bicycle Corporation executive Mary Burke as the only likely Democrat to challenge Republican Governor Scott Walker in November.
