Brad Schimel, Republican candidate for Wisconsin attorney general, calls himself “law enforcement’s choice” in an open letter to Badger State voters his campaign released this morning.
“90 elected law enforcement leaders in Wisconsin, including ten elected Democratic sheriffs and district attorneys and one Independent have put their trust in me as the right choice to lead the Department of Justice,” Schimel wrote.
In the letter, Schimel attacks his opponent, Democrat Susan Happ, for wanting to use the office “to pursue an activist agenda … picking which laws to enforce.”
Schimel goes on to tout his 25 years as a prosecutor. “I have worked thousands of cases, and kept thousands of criminals off the street…. I’ll put my track record as a tough prosecutor up against anyone in the state.”
A recent Marquette University Law School poll shows Schimel leading Happ 43 percent to 39 percent among likely voters.
