Profiling the candidates: Josh Kaul
Josh Kaul, 36, is 17 years younger than incumbent Attorney General Brad Schimel but says his experience as a federal prosecutor in Baltimore gave him the experience he needs.
"I was a federal prosecutor in one of the most violent cities in the country. I prosecuted murders, gang members, and drug traffickers," Democratic Attorney General Candidate Josh Kaul said.
He later moved to Wisconsin as a private attorney taking on election law cases.
"Challenge laws that restrict access to voting rights. That includes a case here in Wisconsin, where the team that I was part of went up against Brad Schimel's team and we won a major victory," said Kaul.
Kaul says he would involve the state in different federal lawsuits than Schimel has.
He says he would join a lawsuit against pharmaceutical companies and drop the one Schimel is spearheading to scrap the Affordable Care Act.
"If that suit is successful, Wisconsinites are going to lose protections for pre-existing conditions that they have. Health insurance companies once again would be able to deny coverage to people on the basis of a pre-existing condition," said Josh Kaul (D).
Kaul says he's an advocate of more gun control measures like universal background checks and a ban on bump stocks.
"Some common sense gun safety measures in Wisconsin. My opponent has suggested that we consider arming teachers. He's criticized gun-free school zones. I think he's taking us in the wrong direction," Kaul said.
He says you should vote for him if you want a change in the Attorney General's office.
"An AG who's going to fight to protect our environment and consumers in Wisconsin, and who's going to be independent and a watchdog," says Kaul.
