MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- Wisconsin Attorney General J.B. Van Hollen says he won't run for a third term.

The Republican made the announcement in a statement Monday. He did not say what his plans are after leaving office in 2014.

Van Hollen was first elected in 2006.

He says he has worked hard to eliminate a backlog in DNA testing at the state crime laboratories and fight crimes against children.
