Attorney General Van Hollen announces he will not run for re-election
MADISON - Wisconsin Attorney General J.B. Van Hollen says he will not run for re-election next fall. The 47-year-old Republican announced the decision in a statement this morning.
Van Hollen did not say what his future plans are, once his second four-year term expires at the end of 2014. The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel said GOP strategists had talked in recent weeks about the possibility of Van Hollen stepping down -- even though Democrats expected him to run again.
