Businessman will run for Wisconsin lieutenant governor (4:57 p.m. 11/10/09)

MADISON, Wis. (AP) — A Lake Geneva businessman says he will run for lieutenant governor.

Republican Ben Collins says he has founded a defense technology company called Aptus Technologies, Inc., in Lake Geneva. He says he served three tours in Afghanistan with the U.S. Army.

He says he’ll focus on creating jobs if he wins the lieutenant governor’s seat.

Superior Mayor Dave Ross and state Rep. Brett Davis of Oregon have said they’re running for lieutenant governor as Republicans, too.

Milwaukee Alderman Tony Zielinski and James Schneider of Gotham have said they’ll run on the Democratic side. Incumbent Lt. Gov. Barbara Lawton, a Democrat, has said she won’t run again.
