Richards promises to be 'lawyer for the people'

State Rep. Jon Richards promised to be a “lawyer for the people” if elected attorney general, saying he
would aggressively fight sexual predators as well as those who prey on the middle class.

Richards said he would go after those who force families to lose their homes and seniors to lose their life savings. He warned the other side will raise the “same tired arguments” whenever he talks about these economic issues.

“But you know and I know we need an attorney general who will be a fighter who will lead us as a lawyer for the people,” Richards said.

He promised to use the power of the office to fight Republicans who try to clamp down on the right to vote, saying he would use every tool in his arsenal if necessary, including taking it to the U.S. Supreme Court.

Richards also said he would go after those who “sell our resources to the highest bidder,” fight efforts to make Wisconsin a right-to-work state, and target employers who deny workers wages and pensions they have earned.

He also said he has the longest and strongest record of denying easy access to guns for criminals.

“I have a message for the NRA: I am not afraid of you, and we won’t back down,” Richards said.
