Schimel Campaign Launches Online Home for Democratic and Independent Supporters
[WAUKESHA COUNTY…] The Brad Schimel for Attorney General campaign is highlighting one of the race’s most under-covered stories with the launch of a new website, OurAttorneyGeneral.com.
“Brad Schimel has broad, bipartisan support all across the state, and we’ve launched OurAttorneyGeneral.com as a place where more Democrats and Independents can sign up to support the proven Wisconsin prosecutor who puts public safety ahead of partisanship,” said Johnny Koremenos, Schimel campaign manager. “As the Wisconsin State Journal said in their endorsement today, ‘Schimel has been tough and smart on crime. Besides putting lots of bad guys away, he has helped to expand drug courts across much of the state that emphasize treatment over incarceration. He eliminated a backlog in sex assault kits that had gone untested.”
At OurAttorneyGeneral.com, visitors can see the list of the more than 20 elected Democratic and Independent public officials who have joined the Schimel team as well as view video testimonials of real Wisconsin voters who support Schimel.
“The Democrats and Independents we feature here have not ‘walked away’ from the Democratic party,” said Koremenos. “They have, however, made the reasoned choice to vote for the Republican in the Attorney General’s race because Brad Schimel has best the experience, record, and temperament to keep Wisconsin safe.
Koremenos held a Facebook Live event on Wednesday morning to launch the site.
“Again the level of bipartisanship in this race is unprecedented,” said Koremenos. “In these highly partisan times, this level of bi-partisanship is extraordinary and is the most under-covered aspect of the campaign season in Wisconsin.”
Brad Schimel became a prosecutor in the Waukesha County District Attorney’s office after serving as an intern there during law school. Throughout his nearly 25-year career in Waukesha, the largest portion of which was spent in the sensitive crimes unit, Brad Schimel earned a reputation as an aggressive and tough prosecutor, handling thousands of cases and more than 150 jury trials. Schimel’s caseload included elder abuse, human trafficking, homicide, sexual assault, drunk driving, internet crimes against children, public corruption, and one of the nation’s first sextortion cases.
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, Schimel 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 and 50 of Wisconsin’s 71 district attorneys, including 21 elected Democrats 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.
