Bucyrus CEO says he would be an independent if he runs

    Former Bucyrus International Inc. CEO Tim Sullivan says he would likely run as an independent if he decides to get in the race for U.S. Senate next year.
    "I couldn’t pick sides, quite frankly,” Sullivan said in an interview for “UpFront with Mike Gousha,” which is produced in conjunction with WisPolitics.com. “I have a problem with both sides. I think both sides right now have their issues. They’re so polarized. The whole country was founded on collaboration and compromise. I don’t know what happened – it’s gone."
    In the interview, Sullivan said he has some time to work through options that are available to him. He has said previously he would decide his future plans after the sale of Bucyrus to Caterpillar is complete, and that process is wrapping up.
    “I’m going to weigh up all of the options I’ve been looking at here in the last month or so and I guess I’ll make a decision sooner or later, but I’m not ready yet," he said.
