Lake Wissota (WQOW) – Eau Claire democrats got a chance to hear from their candidates for state treasurer and attorney general on Saturday Afternoon.

Treasurer candidate Sarah Godlewski responded to allegations raised by Republicans that she violated campaign finance laws by accepting a contribution more substantial than allowed.

“It’s not illegal, it was a loan from a joint account that my husband and I share,” said Godlewski. “We’ve been traveling over 30,000 miles to let people know what the state treasurer should be doing for them. Our vision is about being a fiscal watchdog and providing critical checks and balances. I’m a proud 5th generation Wisconsinite.”

Meanwhile, News 18 asked Attorney General candidate Josh Kaul if he is concerned about 20 democratic District Attorneys and Sheriffs who have endorsed his opponent, Republican Brad Schimel.

“I’m proud to have the endorsement of 61 former assistant AG’s, 45 of them signed a letter that called the AG’s office a mess and laid out a number of reasons why we need new leadership in the AG’s office,” said Kaul.

The election is November 6th; absentee voting is already underway.
