MADISON, Wis. (AP) — Republican Attorney General Brad Schimel has the money edge over his Democratic opponent Josh Kaul going into the new year.

Campaign-finance reports covering the second half of 2017 were due to the state Ethics Commission by the end of the day Tuesday. The state Republican Party issued a news release on Tuesday morning saying Schimel had $529,258 on hand by Dec. 31. He raised $569,809 over the course of the year; of that, $271,774 came in the last six months.

Kaul’s campaign said earlier this month that he planned to report about $280,000 on hand by Dec. 31. He raised slightly more than $429,000 since his campaign began in April with $255,000 coming during the second half of 2017.
