Kaul Declares Victory, Schimel Holds Off on Concession for Now


Democratic challenger Josh Kaul is declaring victory in the race for Wisconsin Attorney General. Early this morning – it was too close to call, as he led incumbent Republican Brad Schimel by just 22,900 total votes.

The race was tight all of Tuesday night, as Schimel held a lead until 46,000 early and mail-in ballots were counted in Milwaukee County. Many of those votes backed democrats, pushing Kaul into the lead. 

Schimel released a statement this morning – saying he spoke with Kaul, and that while the results are not final – it appears he won the race. Schimel says he is waiting until municipal and county canvasses are complete, and every vote is counted – and also wants to know more about the late surge from Milwaukee County. He adds that if the margin does not substantially change, that his team will assist Kaul in making the transition as smooth as possible.
