— A second Republican candidate has entered the race for Walworth County district attorney.

Dan Necci, 31, made the announcement Friday on his Twitter account. Necci lives in Delavan and has a law office in Elkhorn. He ran unsuccessfully in 2010 for the 32nd Assembly seat now held by Rep. Tyler August, R-Lake Geneva.


In a news release issued Monday, Necci listed endorsements from several Walworth County officials.


"As your district attorney, I intend to carry on the traditions of those who have come before me in this office of tough, fair prosecutions and a dogged commitment to victims' rights," Necci wrote in the release.


"But I also have a vision for this office that goes beyond anything done before. I see the district attorney's office as the CEO of a very important company whose primary product is not just convictions, not even just justice, but a constant struggle to improve the lives of the people of Walworth County," he wrote.


Necci received his law degree from Marquette University in 2005, according to the Wisconsin Bar Association.


He joins Rock County Assistant District Attorney Richard Sullivan, who announced in December he would run for the position. Sullivan, 42, lives in Walworth.


Phillip Koss, the current Walworth district attorney, will not seek another term. He is a candidate for the Walworth County Court bench seat now held by Judge Robert Kennedy, who is not seeking re-election.
