Emily's List endorses Happ in AG's race

 

MADISON, Wis. (AP) _ Wisconsin attorney general hopeful Susan Happ has secured a key endorsement from an influential Democratic group.

Emily's List, a Washington-based political group that helps elect Democratic women who support abortion rights, announced Tuesday that has endorsed Happ. An Emily's List endorsement often gives candidates a considerable boost in fundraising from the group's network of donors.

Happ, the Jefferson County district attorney, is one of three Democrats vying for the attorney general post. Dane County District Attorney Ismael Ozanne and state Rep. Jon Richards are in the mix as well. The three of them will square off in an August primary. The survivor will go on to face Waukesha County's Republican district attorney, Brad Schimel, in the November general election.

Incumbent Republican Attorney General J.B. Van Hollen isn't seeking re-election.
