Former Democratic state Sen. Tim Cullen says he is on track for officially launching a run for governor by the end of April.

Cullen said Thursday “I don’t know” of any reason that would stop him from getting in the race. Cullen has been traveling the state for months and laying the groundwork for a run.

Republican Gov. Scott Walker has indicated he plans to seek a third term next year but won’t officially launch his campaign until after the state budget is signed sometime this summer.
