Wisconsin Attorney General J.B. Van Hollen says it's unlikely he'll run for the state Supreme Court after he leaves office next month.
Van Hollen, a Republican, chose not to run for a third term as attorney general. He told The Associated Press in an interview that he felt he has achieved almost everything he wanted. That includes training local police to combat online child pornography and eliminating the backlog of evidence waiting for DNA testing at the state crime lab.
But he said he's unhappy with the media's assumption that all elected officials are corrupt. He said he's tired of being second-guessed.
Some have speculated he may run for the high court this spring, but he says it's probably time to take a break from elected office.
