Former Federal Prosecutor To Run For Ohio Attorney General


Former U.S. Attorney Steven Dettelbach says he will run for Ohio Attorney General next year. His candidacy could give Democrats one of their strongest chances to cut into Republican control of state government. The 51-year-old Dettlebach spent 20 years as a federal prosecutor, and served as U.S. Attorney for the Northern District of Ohio from 2009 to 2016. Dettelbach faces two-term Republican state Auditor Dave Yost, a former Delaware County prosecutor and journalist. Dettelbach says he recently spent a week visiting with urban and rural Ohioans who he says feel "the system is rigged." He pledges to assure the law works equally for everyone.
