AUGUSTA, Maine (AP) - Republicans haven't announced plans to offer up a candidate for Maine's top law enforcement official in the nation's only attorney general race decided by lawmakers.

Democrats Sen. Mike Carpenter, Sen. Mark Dion, Rep. Aaron Frey, lawyer Tim Shannon and Kennebec County District Attorney Maeghan Maloney are in the running for attorney general. Republican Minority Leader Kathleen Dillingham said Republicans don't currently have plans to nominate a candidate.

Lawmakers will select Maine's next attorney general Dec. 5.
