[Madison, WI] — Senate Majority Leader Scott Fitzgerald (R-Juneau) released the following statement reacting to comments made by Democratic candidate for Attorney General Josh Kaul:
“Josh Kaul’s hesitation to commit to defending the law disqualifies him from being a serious candidate for Attorney General. Voters have consistently elected pro-life candidates to the legislature, and a series of reasonable and effective bills have been signed into law that protect the unborn.
“Regardless of ideology or political affiliation, the Attorney General must defend the state and its laws and fight politically-driven lawsuits.
“If Josh Kaul wants to advance his liberal agenda, he should run for the legislature. His comments show that he is a not a good fit to run the Department of Justice.”
