Field of Attorney General Candidates Continues to Grow

AUGUST 15, 2005 - Posted at 8:04 a.m. CDT

NORTH LITTLE ROCK, AR - The city attorney of North Little Rock, who recently returned from military service in Afghanistan, said this morning he will run to become Arkansas' attorney general next year.  Paul Suskie says a formal announcement will come after Labor Day.  He would be the third Democrat in the race, along with state Representative Dustin McDaniel of Jonesboro and Saline County Prosecutor Robert Herzfield.

The current office-holder, Mike Beebe, has announced plans to run for governor.

Suskie said this morning that his service in Afghanistan was a life-changing experience.  He says he has viewed public service as a privilege and that his military service taught him the importance of serving the public.

Suskie worked for former Attorney General Winston Bryant, but Suskie said this morning that he did not expect Bryant to endorse any candidate in the Democratic Party primary.
