Heroin among issues cited in attorney general race

MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- Voters are choosing between two county prosecutors who want to become Wisconsin's next attorney general.

Twenty-nine-year-old Amanda Eskola of Cedarburg said Tuesday that she voted for Republican Brad Schimel because she is a clinical therapist and concerned about an increase in heroin addiction. Eskola says Schimel has been a big advocate for drug addiction treatment and getting heroin off the streets.

Lutheran pastor Janis Kinens says he voted for Democrat Susan Happ because she would not enforce a law requiring abortion providers to have hospital admitting privileges. The 69-year-old Cedarburg resident says he doesn't think religious beliefs about abortion and other issues should be part of the political process.
