A new political ad on behalf of Wisconsin attorney general, Brad Schimel appears to give the republican full credit for school safety grants in the state this year.
It’s part of the Republican Attorneys General Association’s $2.5 million TV campaign to help Schimel defeat Democratic challenger Josh Kaul in November.
It features three women only identified by their first names, saying they’re all mothers.
“I know Wisconsin schools are safer because of what Brad Schimel is doing as attorney general,” one mother, identified as Trisha T., says at the end of the ad.
What the ad skips over is the part about the state legislature approving the $100 million for the school safety grants in the wake of the Parkland school shooting in February.
Schimel’s role has been simply to distribute the grants. And only about half of the grants have been delivered to school districts so far.
