25 New Sheriffs Endorse Fond du Lac Prosecutor
[Fond du Lac, WI…] Fond du Lac County District Attorney Eric Toney today announced the endorsement of 25 additional county sheriffs, bringing his total endorsements by current sheriffs to an unmatched 43.
Toney’s support among Wisconsin’s sheriffs dwarfs that of current Attorney General Josh Kaul, who has reduced key Department of Justice (DOJ) resources while ignoring a record increase in murders and violent crime in the state. Toney is also endorsed by 26 district attorneys as well as the Wisconsin Fraternal Order of Police representing more than 2,000 officers.
Walworth Sheriff Kurt Picknell weighed in on the overwhelming support Toney enjoys with county sheriffs throughout the state.
“I’m endorsing Eric Toney for attorney general because we need an experienced prosecutor to lead the Department of Justice,” said Walworth Sheriff Kurt Picknell. “Eric Toney will instinctively focus the department’s resources and efforts on restoring law and order, fully supporting law enforcement, and taking violent criminals off the streets.”
