    MONTPELIER — Chittenden County State’s Attorney T.J. Donovan says he will not seek a primary rematch against incumbent Attorney General William Sorrell and will likely seek re-election as county prosecutor instead.

    Donovan, 40, challenged Sorrell in 2012, losing by just over 700 votes in a hard-fought Democratic primary race. Donovan had been flirting in recent months with the idea of a second bid to unseat Sorrell, who has already announced his intention to seek re-election.

    “I struggled with the decision and went back and forth for the last couple of months before deciding that it wasn’t the right time for me to see the position of attorney general,” Donovan said Tuesday.

    Donovan said he will likely seek re-election as state’s attorney, but has yet to make a final decision.
