A Lawyer For The People. Steve and Karen welcome Kris Mayes, candidate for Arizona Attorney General. A former Republican turned Democrat, she was born and raised in the Prescott area of Yavapai County. Mayes promises to stand up for the rule of law and to serve the public rather than a particular political ideology.
She views her Republican opponents as anti-democracy with a Trump view of the world, noting that all six have said they would not have certified the 2020 election.
Mayes says, “I’m running for AG to protect our democracy, to protect and defend reproductive rights for women in Arizona, and to get back to the core mission of the Attorney General’s office, which is to defend and protect Arizonans, to be a fighter for consumers, for our elderly – to prosecute elder abuse – and to go after and prosecute the terrible fentanyl crisis that is tearing our families apart right now.”
