It's a race now 

The speculation can end now: Dave Kleis has decided to join the mayoral race against incumbent John Ellenbecker.
Kleis, 41, said he made his decision today after getting lots of phone calls from people urging him to get in the race. Kleis said he plans to file at 4 p.m. today.

Kleis, a Republican, has been in the Senate since 1994 and he defeated Ellenbecker, a Democrat, in 1996 for re-election.
