MADISON, WI (WTAQ) - A third Democrat is entering the race for Wisconsin attorney general.
Jefferson County District Attorney Susan Happ filed paperwork with the state elections' agency to indicate that she'll run.
Dane County DA Ismael Ozanne and State Representative Jon Richards of Milwaukee are also running as Democrats. If at least two of them file, there will be a Democratic primary in mid-August.
As it stands now, the winner will take on the only Republican in the race, Waukesha County DA Brad Schimel, in November.
Happ first signaled her possible candidacy a month-and-a-half ago. She said she was approached about running, and she was exploring the best way to put her experience to work for Wisconsin.
Happ has been the chief prosecutor in Jefferson County since 2009.
Voters will pick a replacement for J.B. Van Hollen, a Republican who will step down after eight years in office.
