Jonesboro Lawmaker to Seek AG's Post

JUNE 21, 2005 - Posted at 7:44 a.m. CDT

 

MOUNTAIN VIEW, AR - Representative Dustin McDaniel of Jonesboro plans to announce his candidacy for state attorney general on June 29.

State party chairman Jason Willett of Jonesboro introduced McDaniel as a candidate at the Democratic Women's Fish Fry in Mountain View over the weekend.  McDaniel had refrained from making any official statements about running for the post last week, in the days after current Attorney General Mike Beebe announced his run for governor.

By contrast, Saline County Prosecutor Robert Herzfeld made public his intentions to run for attorney general the day after Beebe's campaign kick-off.  North Little Rock city attorney Paul Suskie has also declined to address the issue, although he is considered a possible Democratic contender.
