Vinehout says injury prevents run for governor

ALMA, Wis. (AP) — State Sen. Kathleen Vinehout says she won't seek the Democratic nomination for governor.

In a statement issued Friday, 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 Corp. executive Mary Burke as the only likely Democrat to challenge Republican Gov. Scott Walker in November.
