Former VP Biden endorses Josh Kaul for attorney general

MADISON, Wis. (AP) — Former Vice President Joe Biden is endorsing Democrat Josh Kaul in Wisconsin's attorney general race.

Kaul's campaign announced the endorsement in a news release Thursday. The news release quotes Biden saying that Kaul will fight the opioid epidemic, has spoken out about the state Department of Justice's delays in testing unanalyzed sexual assault kits and will stand up for affordable health insurance coverage.

Kaul is the son of former Democratic Attorney General Peg Lautenschlager. He's set to meet Republican Attorney General Brad Schimel in the Nov. 6 general election.

Schimel campaign manager Johnny Koremenos didn't immediately reply to an email seeking comment.
