Alabama Attorney General will lead RAGA after an historic election year that saw the total number of Republican attorneys general increase to 29, the most than at any time in our country’s history.
AUSTIN, TX -- The Republican Attorneys General Association today announced that Alabama Attorney General Luther Strange has officially assumed the chairmanship of the organization at its annual meeting in Austin, Texas.
"It is my honor to serve as chair after an election year that saw Republicans increase the total number of state attorneys general to 29, the most in our country’s history," said Strange. "Our country faces many challenges, and the people have put their trust in us to govern in a responsible and effective manner. I look forward to working with my colleagues in the fight to protect free enterprise, liberty and our constitution."
As chair of RAGA, Strange will lead election and fundraising efforts in the 2017 cycle.
Strange also praised the 2016 RAGA chair, Michigan Attorney General Bill Schuette. "General Schuette’s leadership and vision set the course for the numerous victories Republican attorneys general saw this year, both on a political and policy front. I am honored to receive the baton and continue moving RAGA forward."
In addition, Arkansas Attorney General Leslie Rutledge and Missouri Attorney General-elect Josh Hawley have been named to the RAGA Executive Committee. “AG Rutledge and AG-elect Hawley are young, conservative leaders who have proven themselves to be strong defenders of the constitution and the rule of law,” said Strange. “They will both make great additions to the RAGA Executive Committee.”
Strange will serve as chair until November 2017. West Virginia Attorney General Patrick Morrisey, who was just re-elected this year, will serve as RAGA's 2018 chair.
