MADISON (WKOW) -- Former Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources secretary considers a run for attorney general.
Matt Frank (Dem.) served as DNR secretary under former Governor Jim Doyle. Frank also served as Doyle's Corrections secretary and spent 22 years in the state Justice Department as an assistant attorney general and head of the agency's legal division.
Thursday, Frank stated he'll make a decision within the next ten days.
Also throwing their hats in the ring are Waukesha County District Attorney Brad Schimel (Rep.) and state Representative John Richards (Dem.). Representative Chris Taylor (Dem.) and Wisconsin Professional Police Association Executive Director Jim Palmer are also considering a run.
Last week, incumbent Attorney General J.B. Van Hollen announced he won't be seeking a third term.
