- Wisconsin will need to pick a new Attorney General.
Republican J.B. Van Hollen announced this morning that he would not seek another term in office.
Van Hollen is serving his second term as attorney general, and was first elected in 2006.
Van Hollen said when he was elected, he had a vision of an Attorney General who would fight crime and restore integrity.
He says his administration has put public safety first.
Van Hollen believes not running will allow him to focus on his remaining tasks without the distraction of a campaign.
He also felt no person should be Attorney General for life.
