MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- State Rep. Brett Hulsey has announced his candidacy for governor.

Hulsey is the fourth Democrat to declare a bid for governor. Mary Burke, Marcia Mercedes Perkins and Hariprasad Trivedi have declared their candidacies. Burke is widely viewed as the front runner among those three, however.

Hulsey says he plans to reinvest more than $2 billion to create clean energy jobs, increase job training and send more money to public schools and higher education.

Hulsey has been in the state Assembly for four years and served on the Dane County Board for 14 years. He runs an energy and environmental consulting business.

A Burke campaign spokesman said Hulsey's candidacy won't change Burke's strategy. A campaign spokeswoman for Gov. Scott Walker said Hulsey's announcement doesn't impact Walker's campaign.
