Milwaukee woman registers to run for governor as a Democrat

MILWAUKEE (WTAQ) - A Milwaukee woman has registered to run for governor as a Democrat.  

Marcia Mercedes Perkins filed her initial papers with state officials earlier this week.  

WKOW-TV in Madison said the state Democratic Party doesn't know Mercedes Perkins, and she does not have a campaign Web site at the moment.  

Former Trek Bicycle executive Mary Burke is the only Democrat actively campaigning against Republican Governor Scott Walker.  

Another potential candidate, state Senate Democrat Kathleen Vinehout, dropped out of the race Friday as she recovers from a broken arm from a snow-related traffic crash.
