Toney to take on Kaul for AG

Empower Wisconsin | Aug. 10, 2022

MADISON — In one of the tighter primary races of the night, Fond du Lac District Attorney Eric Toney defeated northern Wisconsin attorney and former state Rep. Adam Jarchow for the Republican nomination for state attorney general.

Ballot counting extended into the wee hours of the night, before news outlets finally called the election around 1:30 a.m. Toney led Jarchow by about a percentage point, 37.7% to 36.9%, or about 4,200 votes.

Karen Mueller, an outspoken critic of COVID vaccine mandates, claimed 25% of the vote.

Much like the Republican gubernatorial primary race, the battle between Toney and Jarchow was marked by fiery rhetoric.

But early Wednesday, Jarchow tweeted his support for Toney, who will face leftist Attorney General Josh Kaul in November.

“In a close and highly contested race, we came up just short,” Jarchow said in a concession tweet. “It’s time to unite behind @EricJToney and ensure he has the resources and support needed to fire Josh Kaul. Eric Toney has my full support.”

Toney will face arguably the most liberal attorney general in state history. From ending Wisconsin’s lawsuit against Obamacare to advising district attorneys to defy Wisconsin’s pro-life laws, Kaul has compiled a record as the left’s legal errand boy.
