“Owens’ campaign also reported that the Republican candidate’s fundraising total also is the most raised by an attorney general candidate in their first report over the last 10 years. Schimel raised more than $194,000 in the first six months of 2013 before his 2014 victory. Kaul raised more than $175,000 in the first half of 2017 before his 2018 win over Schimel.”
