AG Candidates Deliver Back-to-Back Addresses

Kathleen Falk warned fellow Dems of the danger of losing the AG’s office while Peg Lautenschlager ticked off her credentials in their speeches to the convention.

Falk got the opportunity to address convo-goers first.

"Can you imagine waking up in November with a Republican attorney general?" she asked. "J.B. Van Hollen and Paul Bucher would turn Wisconsin into South Dakota. Is that what you want?" she again asked, referring to the GOP candidate’s opposition to abortion.

Falk spent a large portion of her speech railing off a long list of endorsements, as certain sections of the audience cheered in response. Then in what may have been a reference to her opponent’s troubled relationship with the governor, Falk said, "As your nominee, I will stand beside Gov. Jim Doyle (as he seeks re-election)."

"It’s not enough to fight the good fight; we’ve got to win," Falk said.

Lautenschlager quickly addressed her drunk driving incident saying,

"I have made some mistakes along the way … but I come before you knowing my core values have never, never changed."

She then spoke exclusively on her record since she has taken office, saying she has helped to lower meth usage in Wisconsin, to arrest Internet criminals who poach on children, to fight "horrible" legislation seeking to pollute state lakes and rivers, and to fight to keep gas prices down.

She pointed to the more than 30 suits she has filed against pharmaceutical companies.

"I have taken on the powerful," Lautenschlager said to a roaring response from the crowd.
