Democrat Kaul leads Attorney General Schimel by 17,190 votes

MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- Democrat Josh Kaul got 17,190 more votes than Republican Attorney General Brad Schimel in last week's election.

That is according to canvassed votes submitted by all 72 counties to the Wisconsin Elections Commission and released Friday.

The Associated Press did not call the race last week because it was too close. Schimel also did not concede, saying he wanted to wait for the canvass to be complete.

His campaign spokesman Johnny Koremenos said Schimel plans to review the results over the weekend and announce his intentions Monday. His deadline for deciding is Wednesday.

Schimel said on election night that it appeared Kaul had won, but he stopped short of conceding.
