Blank back in running for UW Chancellor

MADISON, WI (WNS/WSAU) - A major player in Washington could be up for the empty chancellor's position at UW-Madison 

A finalist to become the next chancellor at the University of Wisconsin was edged out by Biddy Martin five years ago. Rebecca Blank says she has spent most of her life around a university and she wants to return to that atmosphere. Blank is currently in her second stint as acting secretary at the U.S. Commerce Department.

Blank was previously an economics professor at both Princeton and Northwestern universities. She says she considers herself to be a different candidate than she was five years ago. She says her leadership role at a major federal agency has enhanced her resume.
