In our continuing series, PoliticsPA takes a look at the contenders for the Republican nomination for Pennsylvania Attorney General.

Attorney General

Pennsylvania’s attorney general oversees hundreds of employees divided among criminal, civil, and public protection divisions.

The Commonwealth Attorneys Act prescribes the office’s primary duties, which include prosecuting crimes ranging from drug trafficking to public corruption, directing statewide grand juries, defending state laws, and representing Pennsylvania if the state is audited or prosecuted federally.

The official mission of the office is to protect “life, property, and constitutional and consumer rights, so as to ensure safety and freedom for those living in and visiting the Commonwealth.”

The attorney general also sits on the Board of Pardons and appoints the state’s consumer advocate.

REPUBLICANS

David Sunday (R) vs. Craig Williams (R)

A pair of candidates are vying for the Republican nomination for Attorney General. The position has been viewed recently as a stepping stone to the Governor’s mansion, as both Josh Shapiro and Tom Corbett served as AG prior.
