MADISON, WI (WTAQ) - One of nine candidates for state treasurer has dropped out.  

Democrat Dan Bohrod said he has lost interest in running. Bohrod earlier said he wanted to restore power to the treasurer's office, after GOP lawmakers stripped the treasurer and the secretary of state of virtually all their major duties.  

Eight other candidates had planned to run to replace the outgoing Kurt Schuller.  

Nomination papers for the fall elections must be filed by the end of Monday with the Government Accountability Board.
