MADISON, Wis. (AP) — Democratic attorney general hopeful Josh Kaul says Republican incumbent Brad Schimel’s suggestion that President Donald Trump and U.S. Sen. Ron Johnson wouldn’t have won in Wisconsin without the state’s voter ID law an “incredible admission” that the law was designed to help Republicans win elections.

Schimel asked on WISN-AM last month how many listeners believed Trump would have captured Wisconsin and Johnson would have won re-election in 2016 if the voter ID law hadn’t kept the contests clean and honest.

Kaul is representing liberal group One Wisconsin Institute in a lawsuit challenging the law. Kaul said Wednesday that Schimel’s comments were an “incredible admission by our attorney general” that the law is meant to change election outcomes.

Schimel spokesman Johnny Koremenos didn’t immediately reply to an email.
