All 4 attorney general candidates to debate

By  | 

MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- The three Democrats and one Republican running for Wisconsin attorney general will be debating behind closed doors Saturday at the annual meeting of the Wisconsin Professional Police Association's annual meeting.

WPPA executive director Jim Palmer says the hour-long, town hall style debate is closed to the public because it's part of the statewide police union's candidate endorsement process. Palmer said Thursday that closing the meeting to the public also helps get the candidates to attend.

Waukesha County District Attorney Brad Schimel is the only Republican running. The three Democrats are state Rep. Jon Richards, Dane County District Attorney Ismael Ozanne and Jefferson County District Attorney Susan Happ.

Incumbent Attorney General J.B. Van Hollen is not seeking re-election.
