MILWAUKEE (WTAQ) - A state lawmaker has become the first Democrat to run for the open attorney general's position in next fall's elections. 

Milwaukee Representative Jon Richards says he has filed the necessary paperwork to run for the post that's being given up by Republican J.B. Van Hollen. 

Richards' announcement is no surprise. He said a week ago he was seriously considering a bid.

Richards is a private attorney who's been in the Assembly since 1999. 

Waukesha County District Attorney Brad Schimel is the only Republican running for AG so far. 

Both say they would continue Van Hollen's recent campaign to fight the growing amount of heroin abuse statewide.
