MILWAUKEE (WTAQ) - The chairwoman of the Milwaukee County Board says she'll run for the state Assembly next fall.
Marina Dimitrijevic is the second Democrat to announce her bid for the seat to be given up by south side Milwaukee Democrat Jon Richards. He's running for state attorney general in 2014.
Dimitrijevic immediately announced top heavy endorsements from Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett and U.S. House Democrat Gwen Moore.
Dimitrijevic said she would step down as the Milwaukee County Board chair if she's elected to the Assembly -- but she's not sure yet if she would leave her supervisor's post that she's held for a decade.
