Schimel: Democrat Kaul "appears" to have won attorney general race, but will wait for final count.
Attorney Brad Schimel released this statement Wednesday morning.
“I just got off the phone with Josh Kaul. While the results are not final, it appears he has won this race. I told him I am waiting until the municipal and county canvasses are complete, all military ballots are accounted for and that every vote is counted. We also want to know more about what happened with the absentee ballots in Milwaukee County. However, if the margin does not substantially change, I have vowed that my team will assist him in making the transition as smooth as possible. I want to thank nearly 1.3 Million Wisconsinites for their votes, their prayers and support. We will all know more in about a week.”
Democratic Attorney General candidate Josh Kaul held a press conference at 9 a.m. Wednesday at the Dane County Courthouse declaring victory over Attorney General Brad Schimel.
