Former Arizona Corporation Commissioner Kris Mayes entered the race for Arizona attorney general on June 23.

Mayes served on the Corporation Commission from 2003 to 2010. Mayes is a former Republican who registered as a Democrat during the Trump administration.

In her announcement, she said her priorities are fighting consumer fraud, protecting public education, and preserving the state’s natural resources. 

“There are big companies, politicians, and government agencies that get out of line and mistreat people,” Mayes said in a press release. “The Attorney General’s main job is to use the law to protect you and your family from bad actors."
