Posted at 9:32 AM, Dec 16, 2020

Attorney General Mark Herring has officially announced Wednesday that he will seek re-election as Virginia’s attorney general.

Herring says he seeks re-election to "continue his fight for justice, equality, and opportunity for all Virginians."

Herring made the announcement this morning in a letter to Virginians:

“Serving as your attorney general has been the honor of my life. We’ve worked together to promote justice, equality, and opportunity for all Virginians, to expand and secure the civil rights of our fellow Virginians, and to show Virginians a new vision for what their Attorney General can do for them. The progress we’ve made has been historic, but the work isn’t done. And I’m not the kind of person to walk away unless the job is finished. That is why I am seeking another term as your attorney general and running for re-election in 2021.”
