Schimel critical of Trump comments, but says he will appoint judges who respect Constitution

ELKHORN -- Attorney General Brad Schimel told the crowd at the GOP's Fall Fest today that while he is against Trump's comments about women, the GOP presidential nominee would appoint judges that respect the Constitution.

Schimel warned that if Hillary Clinton were to win the election, she would not only get to nominate a Supreme Court justice, but also roughly 70 district court judges.

"We cannot let Hillary Clinton become the next president because she will appoint judges that don't have any respect for our country or Constitution" he said.

While criticizing recently released lewd comments Trump made about women, Schimel noted Trump would appoint justices that respect the Constitution.

"I don't like hearing anyone talk like that about women," Schimel said. "But Donald Trump will appoint judges that respect our country and our Constitution."

When he started the sentence, he drew a few boos and a shout of "it was 15 years  ago," but applause followed.

During his talk, Schimel stressed the DOJ's efforts to fight against regulations from the Obama administration, such as the clean power plan, which he said would hurt businesses and be a burden on consumers.

He noted the federal court issued an injunction before the trial, which he said was historic. The brief that led to the injunction was written by Wisconsin's solicitor general.

He also drew applause when he mentioned the passage of voter ID and the state's fight to make sure it is in place Nov. 8 in the face of court challenges.

Also speaking during the first portion of the event was Assembly Speaker Robin Vos and Lt. Gov. Rebecca Kleefisch.

Vos drew applause when he touted a number of conservative legislative victories, such as right-to-work, eliminating the GAB, reforming John Doe and Campaign finance law, civil services changes, the 20-week abortion ban and further defunding Panned Parenthood.

Kleefisch called upon the crowd to join with the party's efforts to help win the upcoming election.

Neither Vos nor Kleefisch mentioned Trump.
