Dem AG candidate Josh Kaul is continuing to hit Republican incumbent Brad Schimel over his response to the rape kit backlog in a new ad.
The 30-second spot opens with the number “9” appearing on the screen as Kaul, narrating, says that’s the number of rape kits Schimel tested in his first two years as AG.
“Just nine rape kits,” Kaul tells the camera, before it pans to shots of a neighborhood street. “Dangerous criminals on the streets and survivors waiting for justice, and Brad Schimel tested only nine rape kits in two years.”
Kaul then introduces himself as a federal prosecutor, adding that he’s “put away murderers and drug traffickers” while working in Baltimore.
“You’ve waited long enough for someone who can do the job,” he says to close the spot.
