ELECTION 2018-ATTORNEY GENERAL-WISCONSIN

MADISON, Wis. — Republican Wisconsin Attorney General Brad Schimel has conceded to Democrat Josh Kaul. Schimel announced Monday that he would not seek a recount, even though state law allowed it because the margin of his defeat was less than 1 percentage point. Canvassed vote totals show Schimel lost to Kaul by just over 17,000 votes. Kaul’s win makes him the first Democratic attorney general in Wisconsin since his mother, Peg Lautenschlager, held the post from 2002 to 2006. By Todd Richmond. SENT: 600 words.
