Republican Allister Adel is the incumbent Maricopa County Attorney.

A spokeswoman says Maricopa County Attorney Allister Adel remains hospitalized in serious but stable condition after she fell at home and hit her head.

Spokeswoman Jennifer Liewer said Friday the chief prosecutor for metro Phoenix underwent emergency surgery Tuesday for bleeding on the brain.

Adel, a Republican, was appointed county attorney in 2019 and has the lead over Democratic challenger Julie Gunnigle.
