Democratic Milwaukee County Executive Chris Abele says he “definitely” will not be running for governor in 2018.Gee, really?!
Abele told The Associated Press on Thursday that he felt compelled to deny speculation he might run so it wouldn’t impair his ability to work with both Democrats and Republicans in Milwaukee.
He says, “I am definitely not running for governor. Not that I ever made any noise about it, but others have.”
Talk of Abele possibly preparing for a gubernatorial run has spiked since he hired former state Democratic Party chairman Mike Tate and the party’s communications director Melissa Baldauff in recent weeks.
Abele was first elected in 2011 and is up for re-election next year.
Abele jokes that he might consider running for governor “if the capital is moved to Milwaukee.”
Then maybe Emperor Abele might want to explain this website:

Torhorst is the former aide to Emperor Abele who became his campaign manager and puppet candidate for the state assembly.
Now, it might be just me, but I do believe that Abele has some clarifying to do about whether he is planning on running for governor.
And while he's at it, he might want to rethink his explanation for why he hired disgraced former Democratic Party Chair Mike Tate.
And while I know it would be very difficult and a foreign concept to Abele, he might just want to try telling the truth for a change.
