Fitzgerald Shies Away From US Senate Race, Supports Vukmir

State Senate Majority Leader Scott Fitzgerald says he will not run for the U-S Senate next year. He's endorsing his G-O-P Senate colleague Leah Vukmir (vook'meer) of Wauwatosa, calling her one of the best leaders Wisconsin has to offer.

Fitzgerald also says Vukmir has the "strength and determination" to defeat incumbent Democrat Tammy Baldwin, who's expected to be unopposed in seeking her second six year term in the U-S Senate. Vukmir and former Marine Kevin Nicholson of Delafield have declared their G-O-P candidacies for a primary next August -- and 2012 candidate Eric Hovde says he'll decide next month whether to jump into the race.
