[WAUKESHA COUNTY, WI] Wisconsin Attorney General Brad Schimel’s campaign released its latest fundraising numbers Wednesday showing the Wisconsin prosecutor had more than $1,000,000 cash on hand as of the end of June.
“Brad Schimel’s track record from his nearly 30- year career as a Wisconsin prosecutor is the foundation for all the campaign’s success,” said Campaign Manager Matthew Dobler. “We’re pleased that we, again, hit our fundraising goal; however, our efforts to re-elect Law Enforcement’s choice for top cop will only ramp up from here.”
In total, Schimel has raised $1,621,008.10 for his re-election campaign, and $671,092.98 since the last campaign finance reporting period ended on December 31st.
“Our campaign finance report is the latest evidence that the Schimel campaign has broad, bipartisan support across Wisconsin and is poised to run a comprehensive 72-County campaign yet again,” said Dobler.”
“Josh Kaul’s Liberal, out-of-state state special interest money isn’t enough and won’t fool Wisconsin voters,” he continued. “He lacks experience, has no plan for the job, and isn’t keeping up with our efforts on the ground.”
Under Attorney General Brad Schimel’s leadership, the Wisconsin Department of Justice has become a national leader in the fight against prescription pain killer abuse. The award-winning “Dose of Reality” campaign, for example, has raised awareness of the dangers of prescription opioid abuse. Furthermore, Wisconsin’s drug take back program has collected 400,000 pounds of unused prescription drugs, keeping them out of the wrong hands.
Schimel has also prioritized preventing Internet crimes against children and violence against women. Under Brad Schimel, Wisconsin is a national leader in the fight against human trafficking. Together with a coalition of Attorneys General from across the country, Brad Schimel has led numerous lawsuits challenging overreach by the federal government that would cripple the economy and hurt Wisconsin families.
Brad and his wife, Sandi, raise their two daughters in Waukesha County where Brad previously served as a prosecutor since 1990, including eight years as District Attorney. He was elected Attorney General for the State of Wisconsin in 2014.
