WASHINGTON, D.C. – Democrat Sean Shaw announced today that he is running for Florida Attorney General. In response, Republican Attorneys General Association (RAGA) Executive Director, Scott Will, released the following statement:
“Sean Shaw is an extreme liberal who would put his personal political agenda ahead of anything else — including the law. There should be no doubt, Shaw would join progressive Democrats across America as an activist attorney general — legislating through the court at every turn. This is an affront to our system of government and speaks volumes about Shaw’s disrespect for Floridians. Florida deserves an attorney general who defends the rule of law, protects its citizens and champions opportunity for every person.
“The Republican Attorneys General Association is confident that the winner of the Republican primary will become the 38th Attorney General of Florida.”
