Democratic AG Candidate Picks Up Republican Endorsements

Published: Tuesday, September 23, 2014 - 12:06pm

The Democratic nominee for Attorney General, Felecia Rotellini, has picked up what could be an important endorsement in her race against Republican Mark Brnovich. 

Several dozen Republicans, including former Corporation Commissioner Kris Mayes and former lawmaker Chris Herstam have thrown their support to her, along with former Gov. Fife Symington.

“I'm very oriented towards the individual and the character of the individual when I support people for public office. Felecia stands out as a really wonderful person and has the right temperament to be attorney general of the state," Symington said.

Symington had backed Tom Horne in the GOP Primary, but he said neither decision has anything to do with not backing Brnovitch, whom he says he doesn’t know. 

His decision to back Rotellini puts the former governor at odds with the current Gov. Jan Brewer.
