Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett raised many eyebrows last week when he said he's thinking of running for governor -- again.  It would be his fourth bid, and Gov. Walker has beaten him twice. 

Barrett would also be getting into a crowded Democratic field, as at least nine candidates are running active campaigns.

In this week's "Capitol Notes" conversation, WUWM's Marti Mikkelson asked JR Ross of wispolitics.com, about the likelihood of Barrett entering the race for governor this fall.
