josh-kaulMADISON - Former federal prosecutor and candidate for Attorney General Josh Kaul will kick off the Justice Tour in Milwaukee on Monday with Milwaukee County Sheriff-Elect Earnell Lucas and Milwaukee County District Attorney John Chisholm.

As Wisconsin’s Attorney General, Josh Kaul will work to make Wisconsin safer and stronger than we’re on track for right now. He will respond to Wisconsin’s opioid and meth epidemic like the crisis it is: going after large-scale drug traffickers, supporting increased access to substance-abuse treatment, and holding pharmaceutical companies accountable for their role in the opioid epidemic. Josh will also work to address increased testing delays at the state crime labs and to make sure Wisconsin never sees a backlog of untested rape kits again. And as AG, Josh will be an advocate for community policing and prosecution.

WHAT: Justice Tour Kickoff

WHO: Candidate for Attorney General Josh Kaul, Sheriff-Elect Earnell Lucas and District Attorney John Chisholm

WHEN: MONDAY, October 1, 2018 at 1:00 p.m.

WHERE: Milwaukee City Hall, 200 E Wells St

Milwaukee, WI 53202

Josh Kaul served as a federal prosecutor in Baltimore, one of America’s most violent cities. There, Kaul prosecuted murderers, gang members, and drug traffickers, taking dangerous criminals off the street and making communities more secure. He grew up in Oshkosh and Fond du Lac in a family of law enforcement professionals and teachers. He is running for Attorney General in 2018.

President ObamaHonored to have former President's support, says Evers.


MADISON - Monday, President Obama endorsed Tony Evers for Governor and Mandela Barnes for Lt. Governor because of their positive vision for Wisconsin that will bring people together. The President released the following statement:

tony_evers“Tony has spent his entire career fighting for kids in Wisconsin, first as a science teacher and now as State Superintendent, and that’s why Tony is exactly the kind of person Wisconsin needs as its next governor. Tony knows what unites us is stronger than what divides us. Tony is focused on his positive vision for Wisconsin and the issues that matter most to hard-working families like protecting people with pre-existing conditions, fixing Wisconsin’s crumbling roads and infrastructure, and fully funding public schools. Wisconsin deserves a governor who will govern with respect, experience, and who will put Wisconsin families before special interests and personal political ambitions. I’m proud to give Tony my endorsement and hope you’ll join me in supporting him to be the next governor of Wisconsin.”

“I am honored to have the endorsement of President Obama,” Evers said. “President Obama believed deeply in the ability of people coming together to solve problems and in an economy that works for all. I thank him for his support, and as Governor I’ll continue to work to expand opportunity across our state, ensure access to affordable health care and a quality public education, and to always put the people of Wisconsin first.”

leah-vukmirIn a new interview, Vukmir says she proudly worked for ALEC at the expense of Wisconsin working families.


MADISON - In a new interview, Republican U.S. Senate candidate Leah Vukmir responded to a HuffPost report that she on at least 24 occasions championed legislation inspired by model bills drafted by the corporate special interest group ALEC, telling Capitol City Sunday's Emilee Fannon that she is "proud" of her work to advance the agenda set forth by ALEC's corporate members.

"I'm proud to have been a part of [ALEC] -- I was a national chairman."

In exchange for Vukmir's work for ALEC, Vukmir collected nearly $40,000 in campaign contributions from ALEC corporate members -- a brazen quid pro quo that benefited Vukmir and her corporate backers at the expense of Wisconsin families.

Also this weekend, Vukmir again recommitted to repealing the Affordable Care Act and gutting federal protections for Wisconsinites with pre-existing conditions, if she's elected, saying, "I will use my background as a nurse to once and for all replace Obamacare." 2.4 million Wisconsinites have pre-existing conditions. 

WATCH Vukmir defend her record of working for ALEC here.
