MADISON, WI (WTAQ) - The only Republican candidate for Wisconsin attorney general has $172,000 in his campaign fund.
Waukesha County District Attorney Brad Schimel reports Friday that he raised almost $177,000 between July and December of 2013.
As it stands now, Schimel would face the winner of a three-way Democratic primary this fall.
Assembly Democrat Jon Richards said earlier this week he has $92,000 on hand. Dane County DA Ismael Ozanne had not released his financial totals as of late morning. Jefferson County DA Susan Happ does not have to file a finance report until July, because she did not form her campaign committee until earlier this month.
The other candidates had until the end of Friday to submit their finance data to the state.
The attorney general's job is open, after Republican J.B. Van Hollen said he would step down after eight years in office.
