MILWAUKEE – Today, the Kaul for Attorney General campaign announced an endorsement from Milwaukee County District Attorney John Chisholm.

Josh Kaul has prosecuted violent criminals and large-scale drug traffickers,” Chisholm said. “He also understands that we need an Attorney General who is a leader on criminal-justice issues, who is serious about enforcing our consumer-protection and environmental laws, and who is an independent watchdog for all Wisconsinites.”

“Josh has the experience and the values we need in our Attorney General,” Chisholm continued. “That’s why I’m stepping up to help him get elected.”

Chisholm, who has been a prosecutor in Milwaukee County for over 20 years, has served as Milwaukee County District Attorney since 2007. Under Chisholm’s leadership, the Milwaukee County DA’s Office has received national attention and been a model for other offices.

Kaul served as a federal prosecutor in Baltimore, one of America’s most violent cities. There, he 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.
