Republican attorney general candidate picks up loser's endorsement

Posted By on Fri, May 23, 2014 at 7:10 AM

Leslie Rutledge, the leader in the Republican primary race for attorney general, has announced that she's being supported by Patricia Nation, who finished third in the three-way race with David Sterling.

The votes split 47-39-14.

The runoff opponents both have emphasized their love of God and guns and opposition to abortion, same-sex marriage and the federal rule of law. Sterling has benefited from a big expenditure of anonymously sourced out-of-state money that praises his support of Kill the Witness gun legislation.
