Race for Attorney General Gets More Crowded

Another candidate for Wisconsin’s attorney general officially throws his hat in the ring.

Former United States Attorney J.B. Van Hollen says he's not running because of anything that has happened in incumbent Peg Lautenschlager's personal life. Van Hollen says he's running because a number of issues have not been addressed.

He claims Lautenschlager has not been proactive in her role as the state's top cop.

“She has not been a leader as attorney general," Van Hollen said during a Monday morning news conference. " Why she has not been? I don't know, but that is something I have been as United States attorney and intend to be as attorney general.”

Van Hollen joins Waukesha County district attorney Paul Bucher in seeking the republican nomination.
