MADISON, Wis. (AP) - A former Waukesha police officer who now helps train current and prospective law enforcement officers is running for the Wisconsin state Senate.

Republican Brian Dorow announced his candidacy on Monday. He joins state Rep. Chris Kapenga, of Delafield, in running to replace Sen. Paul Farrow. He will be vacating his seat this summer after being elected as Waukesha County executive.

Dorow had considered running for county executive but did not. He previously ran for the state Assembly in 2010 but came in second to Kapenga.

Dorow is associate dean at Waukesha County Technical College.

Gov. Scott Walker will have to call a special election once Farrow resigns from his Senate seat.

The Senate district in Waukesha County is heavily Republican. The Senate is currently controlled by Republicans 19-14.
