MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- Republican attorney general candidate Brad Schimel has about $400,000 cash on hand, more than twice as much as two Democratic opponents.

Schimel is the Waukesha County district attorney and the only Republican in the race. He reported Monday that his campaign raised nearly $367,000 in the first six months of the year and had $400,000 as of July.
   
Three Democrats are also running.
   
Democratic state Rep. Jon Richards, of Milwaukee, reported raising $190,000 and having nearly $170,000 cash on hand. Susan Happ, the Jefferson County district attorney, reported raising $170,000 and having nearly $121,000 cash on hand.
   
The third Democratic candidate, Dane County District Attorney Ismael Ozanne, had not reported any figures as of late afternoon Monday.
   
The deadline for filing is midnight.
