MADISON, Wis. (AP) — Democrat Susan Happ has conceded the Wisconsin attorney general race to Republican Brad Schimel.

Schimel, the Waukesha County district attorney, and Happ, the Jefferson County district attorney, were both vying to replace outgoing Republican Attorney General J.B. Van Hollen.

They were locked in one of the tightest attorney general races Wisconsin has seen in years, with Schimel accusing Happ of being soft on crime and Happ countering that Schimel would be a GOP robot who would blindly defend any law Republican legislators pass.
