WAUKESHA COUNTY (WKOW) -- A southeastern Wisconsin prosecutor has created a campaign committee to run for state attorney general.
Waukesha County District Attorney Brad Schimel filed a campaign registration statement with the state Government Accountability Board on Wednesday, which allows him to raise campaign money and enables him to get on the ballot if he can collect at least 2,000 signatures on his nomination papers.
Schimel would run to replace Attorney General J.B. Van Hollen, who announced Monday he would not seek a third term when his current term expires at the end of 2014.
Schimel said in a statement he is preparing a formal announcement.
