Former Wisconsin Democratic Party Chairman runs for governor
MADISON - Former Wisconsin Democratic Party Chairman Matt Flynn says he's running for governor because the progressive traditions of Wisconsin are being "obliterated" by Republican Gov. Scott Walker.

Flynn says in a campaign launch video Tuesday that President Donald Trump has corrupted the government and is dividing the country, while Walker is controlled by corporate donors.

He also says Walker was "taken to the cleaners" on the $3 billion incentive package for electronics manufacturer Foxconn Technology Group.

Flynn is one of eight Democrats who have launched campaigns to challenge Walker, and several others are still considering getting in.

The 70-year-old Flynn is a retired partner with the Quarles and Brady law firm.

He previously ran unsuccessfully for U.S. Senate in 1986 and 1988 and for the U.S. House of Representatives in 1978 and 2004.
