Home / On the Issues / 2015 / Brad Schimel, Attorney General of Wisconsin 32

Elected in November of 2014, Attorney General Schimel has been busy on a number of fronts, working with local law enforcement to stop the dramatic surge in Milwaukee gun violence, dealing with a heroin and painkiller epidemic in Wisconsin, and suing the federal government to allow drug testing for certain welfare recipients. He also made headlines when he criticized potential changes to the state’s open records law, and has since hosted an open government summit. Schimel is the former Waukesha County District Attorney; this is his first visit to the Law School since last October, when he appeared in a debate with his Democratic opponent, Susan Happ.
