MILWAUKEE (AP) -- Wisconsin voters are heading to the polls in a primary election that will determine the Democrats pick for governor and attorney general.

Turnout for Tuesday's balloting is predicted to be about 15 percent.

The primary winner in a three-way race for attorney general will face Republican Waukesha County District Attorney Brad Schimel in November. The Democratic candidates are state Rep. Jon Richards of Milwaukee and district attorneys Susan Happ of Jefferson County and Ismael Ozanne of Dane County. Republican J.B. Van Hollen is not seeking re-election.

In the Democratic race for governor, Trek Bicycles executive Mary Burke is expected to easily defeat longshot candidate Brett Hulsey, who raised almost no money and was largely shunned by party leaders and other office holders. Republican Gov. Scott Walker is unopposed in the primary.
