According to her Facebook status, Lisa Subeck, the executive director of NARAL Pro-Choice Wisconsin, is running for the Madison Common Council seat being vacated by conservative Ald. Jed Sanborn.
Subeck made an unsuccessful bid against Sanborn in 2005. Three years later she lost a race for County Board against conservative Sup. Ron Ferrell. In both instances, she was a progressive candidate running in suburban, right-leaning districts.
However, her political associations have likely changed in the past few years. While in the past she was supported by Progressive Dane leaders, this year her campaign begins with the endorsements of Mayor Dave, Kathleen Falk and Rep. Sondy Pope-Roberts, all relevant members of the Democratic Party establishment in the area. And I can't resist mentioning -- she lists "Democratic Party" under political opinions on Facebook.
There will be more info and analysis to come!
