The Dem field for the U.S. Senate race next year continues to grow.

Milwaukee attorney Peter Peckarsky, who ran unsuccessfully for a Wisconsin spot on the DNC four years ago, announced over the weekend that he’s getting into the race.

Prior to his unsuccessful bid for the DNC spot, he ran for national party chair.

Meanwhile, software developer Adam Murphy, who lost a bid for the heavily GOP 28th Senate District in November, filed in mid-June to run. He got 40.3 percent of the vote in losing to state Sen. Julian Bradley, R-Franklin.

Those who have filed to run as Dems include: Wausau area Dr. Gillian Battino; state Treasurer Sarah Godlewski; state Sen. Chris Larson; Alex Lasry, who’s on leave from his position as a Milwaukee Bucks executive; and Outagamie County Exec Tom Nelson.

Steve Olikara, who co-founded the Millennial Action Project, announced in May he was forming an exploratory committee and is expected to get in.

And Lt. Gov. Mandela Barnes is still considering a run.
