According to Chris Potter of the Post-Gazette, Pittsburgh attorney David Fawcett is running for Attorney General next year.
“The office of Attorney General is, unfortunately, dysfunctional,” Fawcett said. “It needs energy so it can do its job, which is to protect Pennsylvanians — especially the vulnerable. I’m running to provide the kind of leadership needed to reinvigorate the office and return integrity to it.”
Fawcett’s only political experience was serving on the Allegheny County Council from 2000 to 2007. Back then, though, Fawcett was a Republican occupying the GOP’s “at-large” council seat.
Prosecutor Jack Stollsteimer and Northampton County DA John Morganelli are already running for the Democratic nomination while Montgomery County Commissioner Josh Shapiro is also expected to enter the race.
