Sen. Feyen and Rep. Thiesfeldt Support Only AG Candidate Who Has Prosecuted Criminals in Wisconsin

[FOND DU LAC COUNTY, Wis…] Today, Fond du Lac’s legislators, State Sen. Dan Feyen and Rep. Jeremy Thiesfeldt, announced their support for Our Attorney General Brad Schimel’s re-election next month, citing his lifelong career keeping Wisconsin families safe.

“Brad Schimel didn’t just start working for a safer and stronger Wisconsin because of a political ambition,” said State Sen. Dan Feyen. “Unlike his opponent, Josh Kaul, who just moved back to Wisconsin, Brad Schimel has been a lifelong prosecutor who has put thousands of criminals behind bars.”

Brad Schimel’s experience as a prosecutor and victim advocate is unmatched in this race. He’s spent the largest part of his career as a prosecutor in the sensitive crimes unit, protecting children and vulnerable adults and holding predators accountable. Schimel is appreciative of the Fond du Lac area legislators, who have been public safety allies, having supported laws to curb the opioid epidemic and provide funding for school safety improvements.

“Wisconsinites have an easy choice to make in the race for Attorney General,” said State Rep. Jeremy Thiesfeldt. “Brad Schimel has a distinguished career as a Wisconsin prosecutor, and his opponent has never prosecuted a single criminal in Wisconsin because he has been too busy fighting political battles against laws we’ve passed in Wisconsin, like voter ID and the Unborn Child Protection Act.”

Schimel faces activist Josh Kaul in the General Election. Whereas Brad Schimel has a nearly three decades long, distinguished career as a prosecutor in this state, Josh Kaul has never prosecuted a criminal case in Wisconsin. Not one, ever. Whereas Schimel has a broad, bipartisan coalition of Wisconsin supporters, Kaul is funded and supported by state and national partisan activists.

As Attorney General, Shimel has also prioritized preventing Internet crimes against children and violence against women. Under 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 Schimel’s determined, yet compassionate, record on criminal justice has earned him the support of 64 of Wisconsin’s 72 sheriffs, including 13 elected Democrat sheriffs who appreciate the breadth, depth, and nonpartisan nature of the Republican Attorney General’s experience.

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 the elected District Attorney. He was elected Wisconsin Attorney General in 2014.
