MADISON – Rep. Chris Taylor (D-Madison) today released the following statement regarding the race for Attorney General:

“Over the past several weeks, I’ve been humbled by the encouragement and support I’ve received from family, friends and supporters as I’ve considered a campaign for Attorney General.

”Wisconsinites have witnessed an increased politicization of the state’s Attorney General position under J.B. Van Hollen. The Attorney General is not just the ‘top cop,’ but also must defend our most fundamental constitutional rights. In this regard, Mr. Van Hollen has failed miserably at his job. The next Attorney General must not be afraid to stand up for Wisconsinites, even when it means standing up to their own political party.

“While defending people’s civil rights is a passion of mine, I’ve decided after careful consideration, I will not be a candidate for Attorney General at this time. I love my job as a state representative. With such critical work to be done in the legislature, I will continue to focus my efforts on representing the people of the 76th Assembly district.”
