MADISON (WKOW) -- Dane County District Attorney Ismael Ozanne is seriously considering a run for attorney general, according to a report from the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel. The newspaper reports Ozanne hasn't set a timeline for a decision.
Ozanne has served as Dane County's DA since he was appointed to the post by Former Democratic Governor Jim Doyle in 2010.
Ozanne made headlines in 2011 when he unsuccessfully sued to stop Governor Scott Walker's collective bargaining restrictions.
State Rep. Jon Richards, a Milwaukee Democrat, declared his candidacy earlier this week. So did Waukesha County District Attorney Brad Schimel, a Republican.
Rep. Chris Taylor, a Madison Democrat, and Matt Frank, who served in Doyle's cabinet, also are considering running.
Incumbent Attorney General J.B. Van Hollen announced earlier this month he won't seek re-election.
