Candidate drops out of treasurer race due to "lost interest"

Posted: Updated:
MADISON (WKOW) -- A Democratic candidate has dropped out of the race for state treasurer, saying he has lost interest.

Dan Bohrod was previously one of the candidates attempting to replace Republican Treasurer Kurt Schuller, and take over a position that has lost nearly every substantive power and faces ongoing threats of elimination from the Legislature.

The Assembly passed an amendment to get rid of the constitutional office last session, but that bill failed in the Senate. Any successful amendment has to pass both houses two years in a row before heading to the voters for a referendum.

Bohrod was running a campaign to restore power to the office.

Eight other candidates have said they are running and have to turn in nomination signatures by Monday.
