A Look At How State AGs are Becoming “1st Round Draft Picks” of American Politics

On Election Day, a senior fellow at the Hugh L. Carey Institute for Government Reform at Wagner College looks at how state attorneys general “should be the group everyone is watching” in politics.

Joshua Spivak said state attorneys general “have now become the first round draft picks of American politics,” particularly because many officials in the position have moved to higher office. Governors in three of the four most populous states are former attorneys general, as are eight U.S. Senators. According to Spivak, this has happened thanks to the growing role attorneys general now play in state and national politics and policy debates.
