Republican AG Schimel outraises Democratic opponent Kaul

Posted: Updated:

MADISON, Wis. (AP) - Republican Attorney General Brad Schimel has outraised his Democratic challenger Josh Kaul over the first six months of the year.

Schimel said Wednesday that he raised $671,000 over that period, compared with 570,000 that Kaul brought in. Schimel says he has more than $1 million cash on hand, while Kaul says he has about $680,000.

Kaul is a former federal prosecutor who is taking on Schimel as he seeks a second term.

Neither candidate has run any television ads in advance of the November election.

Schimel says he has raised more than $1.6 million to date for the campaign.

The campaign finance reports are due to the state on Monday and offer a measurement of how well candidates are doing with their supporters.
