As Attorney General Henry McMaster seeks the seat of governor, there are three candidates vying to take his place as that state’s top prosecutor. Among the three candidates running for attorney general, Robert Bolchoz worked as a prosecutor for ten years. After being out of the field, he says he’s ready to get back in and step it up.
I think we need not just a chief prosecutor, but a chief watchdog at the state level to look out for the taxpayers. I’m not sure we have that right now and I think we need it, and that’s what I wanna try and do.
Alan Wilson says he has experience in several areas needed to be Attorney General:
As someone who is the only combat veteran who’s ever served in Iraq that’s running in this race, I’ve had the opportunity to lead soldiers into combat. As the only person in this race that’s prosecuted a case in 21st Century, I have the prosecution experience that the attorney general needs in order to run that office respectively. I’m a conservative who believes in the strict construction of the constitution and believes in strong 10th Amendment rights and state sovereignty and individual liberty.
Also running is Leighton Lord.
