Prosecutor bests ex-legislator for Wisconsin GOP AG nod

MADISON, Wis. (AP) — Veteran prosecutor Eric Toney has defeated former state Rep. Adam Jarchow to win the Republican nomination for Wisconsin attorney general.

Unofficial results show the Fond du Lac County district attorney beat Jarchow in Tuesday's primary.

Toney will go on to face incumbent Democrat Josh Kaul in the Nov. 8 general election.

Toney played up his courtroom experience; he has served as Fond du Lac County's top prosecutor since 2013.

Jarchow tried to paint himself as the more conservative candidate, criticizing the federal government, transgender athletes and President Joe Biden for rising inflation.
