MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- A Wauwatosa businessman has become the seventh candidate to file for election as state treasurer, an office that has seen almost every meaningful duty taken away in recent years.

Republican Matt Adamczyk said Tuesday in his campaign announcement that if elected he'd work with the Legislature to eliminate the state treasurer position. Adamczyk also says he wants to expose wasteful spending.

Lawmakers for seven straight sessions have chipped away at the position's powers. The Assembly this session passed a constitutional amendment that would get rid of the job entirely.

Despite the animosity from legislators, the position has garnered more interest than almost any other race for statewide office. Some candidates are calling for the position's demise, while others say the Legislature should give back the office's power.
