Washington, D.C.— Following the Democratic primary earlier this month, the Democratic Attorneys General Association (DAGA) endorsed Joe Siegelman for Alabama Attorney General today. Siegelman earned his law degree from the University of Alabama, is an active member of the Alabama State Bar, and is a Managing Partner in The Cochran Firm’s Birmingham office.

“We are proud to endorse Joe Siegelman for Attorney General in Alabama,” said Sean Rankin, Executive Director of the Democratic Attorneys General Association. “There is an urgency for new leadership in Montgomery—and that fresh start is Joe Siegelman.”

“As a lifelong Alabamian, Siegelman grew up with a strong understanding of the importance of family and community,” continued Rankin. “He will work tirelessly to achieve justice, hold those in power accountable, and fight to see integrity restored to public office for the families and communities in every corner of Alabama.”

In November, Siegelman will face the winner of the Republican primary run-off in July between current Attorney General Steve Marshall and former Attorney General Troy King.

“In the last year, the voters of Alabama have taken it upon themselves to make a change for the better. They want to elect leaders who will put the needs of the people of Alabama first, every day, not just when it suits their political needs and their friends. Joe Siegelman will put people above politics,” Rankin added.

“I’m honored to have the support of so many Attorneys General from across the country. They join in my campaign to focus on issues that impact the lives of everyday people and to get politics out of that office,” Siegelman said.

“It doesn’t matter if you are a Democrat or a Republican, to be Attorney General you have to be independent and treat everyone the same. Once and for all it will be about People, not Politics,” Siegelman continued.

The Democratic Attorneys General Association (DAGA) provides political and policy support to Democratic Attorneys General and candidates in their mission to protect civil rights, promote progress and diversity, fight corruption, and ensure the law is applied fairly for all of those that live and work in America.
