WAUKESHA, Wis. (AP) -- Waukesha County District Attorney Brad Schimel has formally announced he will run for Wisconsin attorney general.

The Republican says he will make fighting heroin his top priority and that he wants to make doctors and schools more aware of the problem.

Schimel is the first candidate to officially enter the race since incumbent Attorney General J.B. Van Hollen announced last week he wouldn't seek re-election next year.

Democratic state Reps. Chris Taylor and Jon Richards are contemplating running. Wisconsin Professional Police Association Executive Director Jim Palmer says he's considering running as an independent. None of them has announced a decision yet, though.
