MADISON – Former federal prosecutor Josh Kaul’s campaign for Attorney General is off to a strong start.

The campaign announced today that Kaul has been endorsed by U.S. Representative Gwen Moore, U.S. Representative Mark Pocan, and more than 20 other current and former elected officials from across the state. The campaign also announced that, in just over 2½ months, Kaul raised more than $170,000.

mark-pocanIn endorsing Kaul, Rep. Pocan said: "I'm proud to wholeheartedly support Josh Kaul, and I look forward to working alongside him to make sure he's elected as our next Attorney General. As a federal prosecutor, Josh took on violent criminals—and won. He’s gone to court to defend our constitutional rights—and won.”

Pocan added: “Josh is the right person to restore effective leadership to the Attorney General's Office, and he's the right candidate to defeat Brad Schimel in 2018."

The officials who have endorsed Josh Kaul for Attorney General include:

  • Rep. Gwen Moore
  • Rep. Mark Pocan
  • Former Governor Tony Earl
  • Former Lieutenant Governor Barbara Lawton
  • Dane County Executive Joe Parisi
  • Winnebago County Executive Mark Harris
  • Former Dane County Executive Kathleen Falk
  • Former Brown County Executive Nancy Nusbaum
  • Former Rep. Steve Kagen
  • State Senator Dave Hansen
  • State Senator Mark Miller
  • State Senator Lena Taylor
  • Former State Senator Jessica King
  • State Rep. Jimmy Anderson
  • State Rep. David Crowley
  • State Rep. Steve Doyle
  • State Rep. Eric Genrich
  • State Rep. Gordon Hintz
  • State Rep. Nick Milroy
  • State Rep. Sondy Pope
  • State Rep. Christine Sinicki
  • State Rep. Amanda Stuck
  • Former State Rep. Mandy Wright

As an Assistant United States Attorney, Kaul prosecuted murderers, gang members, and drug traffickers. He believes that Wisconsin needs an Attorney General who is focused on protecting Wisconsin families rather than powerful special interests.

The incumbent Attorney General, Brad Schimel, has failed to adequately address Wisconsin’s massive rape-kit backlog and wasted over $10,000 of taxpayer money on fake coins.

The full campaign finance report is due July 17th and will be available publicly through the Wisconsin Ethics Commission.
