MADISON — Today, following the release of Attorney General Brad Schimel’s statement announcing that he will not request a recount, Attorney General-elect Josh Kaul released the following statement:

“I want to thank Attorney General Brad Schimel for his public service.”

“As Attorney General, I’ll work to ensure that Wisconsin is responding to the opioid epidemic like the crisis it is. I’ll make sure that all DNA matches that resulted from the testing of the kits in Wisconsin’s rape-kit backlog are fully investigated, and I’ll work to address the increase in testing times at the state crime labs. I’ll advocate for common-sense gun-safety measures. I’ll ensure that our environmental and consumer-protection laws are being seriously and even-handedly enforced. And I look forward to working with Governor-elect Evers to withdraw the State of Wisconsin from the lawsuit that’s seeking to invalidate the Affordable Care Act and eliminate protections for pre-existing conditions.”

“As your AG, I will be an advocate for all Wisconsinites.”

Josh Kaul served as a federal prosecutor in Baltimore, one of America’s most violent cities. There, Kaul prosecuted murderers, gang members, and drug traffickers, taking dangerous criminals off the street and making communities more secure. He grew up in Oshkosh and Fond du Lac in a family of law enforcement professionals and teachers.
