Brown County Sheriff John Gossage and Eau Claire County Sheriff Ron Cramer appear in a five-figure digital ad buy by the Republican Attorneys General Association. In it, they praise Schimel, who has been accused by opponent Josh Kaul and other Democrats of failing to prioritize the testing of sexual assault evidence kits, both as a local prosecutor and attorney general. 
"Brad Schimel took action on the backlog of the rape kits and got results," Cramer says in the ad.
