Schimel Silent After Kaul Proposes Debates in Every Wisconsin Congressional District

MADISON — Four weeks ago today, former federal prosecutor and candidate for Wisconsin Attorney General Josh Kaul challenged incumbent Attorney General Brad Schimel to agree to eight debates, one in each Wisconsin congressional district. After the most recent finance report showing Kaul raising more than twice the amount raised by Schimel during the period from July 1 through July 30, Kaul is again calling on the incumbent Attorney General to defend his failures in office.

In a letter to the incumbent Attorney General, former federal prosecutor and candidate for Attorney General Josh Kaul wrote, “I believe it is important that voters from across the state be able to hear directly from us about our plans to make Wisconsin safer and stronger. Accordingly, I am writing to request that you agree to one debate in each of Wisconsin’s eight congressional districts.”

Today, Gillian Drummond, a spokesperson for Kaul, said, “Josh Kaul has called for debates—but four weeks later, we still haven’t heard back from Brad Schimel.” Drummond added, “It’s easy to see why Schimel wouldn’t want to defend his record in a debate. He mishandled Wisconsin’s backlog of untested rape kits. He still hasn’t taken a position on the distribution of blueprints for 3D-printed guns. And he’s one of the leaders of a lawsuit that’s seeking to eliminate protections for people with pre-existing conditions.”

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. He is running for Attorney General in 2018.
