MADISON, Wis. (AP) — Democratic Attorney General Josh Kaul is teaming up with former Republican Attorney General J.B. Van Hollen to lead a new bipartisan group promoting absentee voting and safe in-person voting this fall.

Kaul and Van Hollen announced Tuesday they’ll serve as co-chairmen of a new Wisconsin chapter of VoteSafe.

Members include former Republican Gov. Scott McCallum as well as Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett and Milwaukee County Executive David Crowley, both Democrats.
