No Final Decision Yet In Wisconsin Attorney General Race

Nov 7, 2018

The race for attorney general was too close to call Tuesday night after the election. However, Wednesday morning, incumbent Brad Schimel said it "appears'' that Democrat Josh Kaul has won the race.

Still, Schimel says he would wait until all votes are counted before conceding. Schimel said in a statement Wednesday morning that he had spoken with Kaul and that if the margin doesn't substantially change, he will help  to make the transition smooth.

With the unofficial vote nearly complete, Kaul led by almost 23,000 votes, or less than 1 percentage point. Under Wisconsin law, recounts are only allowed if the margin is less than 1 percentage point.
