[Fond du Lac, WI…] Following endorsements by Racine County Sheriff Christopher Schmaling and the Racine Police Association of Eric Toney for attorney general, state Senator Van Wanggaard, Racine County Executive Jonathan Delagrave, and Racine County Clerk of Courts Sam Christensen have endorsed the Fond du Lac County District Attorney for Wisconsin’s ‘top cop.’
Sen. Wanggaard served in law enforcement for 30 years, and was elected to the Racine Country Board of Supervisors in 2002 and the State Senate in 2010.
“Eric Toney has been on the frontlines fighting crime and working hand-in-hand with law enforcement to make Wisconsin families safer, while Josh Kaul’s woke politics puts our citizens at greater risk each day,” said Sen. Wanggaard. “Milwaukee’s historic crime surge is spilling over into Racine and Kenosha Counties, and we need Eric’s tough-as-nails prosecutorial experience and commitment to public safety to lead the Department of Justice. He’ll make an excellent Attorney General and I’m happy to endorse his candidacy.”
The Wanggaard, Delagrave, and Christensen endorsements add to the unmatched support Toney enjoys from local law enforcement across Wisconsin. More than 90 law enforcement officials as well as the Milwaukee Police Association, WI Fraternal Order of Police, and the Racine Police Association have endorsed the only prosecutor in the race for attorney general with frontline prosecution experience in Wisconsin.
Racine County Executive Jonathan Delagrave added, “Racine County and the rest of Wisconsin needs a strong leader as attorney general. Eric embodies what it means to be the state’s top cop and legal counsel. He’ll reject Madison’s political wrangling, and instead focus the DOJ on public safety and the rule of law. I’m proud to be endorsing Eric Toney to lead the Department of Justice.”
District Attorney Toney is the only prosecutor in the race for attorney general to have personally prosecuted cases in Wisconsin.
“I’m honored to have the endorsement of Racine County leaders. As a district attorney, I’ve successfully fought for justice in the courtroom in partnership with law enforcement to keep families and communities safe. I’ll defeat Josh Kaul and return the Wisconsin Department of Justice to the crime fighting agency it’s supposed to be and restore the deveataring cuts Kaul has made to public safety at the DOJ,” said District Attorney Toney.
