Galloway, 54, chairs the Marathon County GOP, and she's the director of the Breast Center of Central Wisconsin.

Her prescription for state government includes less spending and lower taxes to improve the state's business climate.

Galloway said the recent Tea Party protests of state and federal spending convinced her that more citizens should get involved with their government. Decker's office confirms he'll run again next year.

Decker, a former bricklayer, won the Senate seat in 1990 by defeating long-time Republican Walter John Chilsen.
