Steve Dettelbach Enters The Race For Ohio Attorney General

Former Obama administration U.S. Attorney lays down his platform for Ohio Attorney General.

Former U.S. Attorney Steven Dettelbach officially declared today his intention to run for Ohio Attorney General. The announcement follows a statewide listening tour in which Dettelbach met with working families, community leaders, and law enforcement officers, listening to their concerns about a legal system many feel rigged. “Too many hard-working Ohioans today see a system rigged against them,” the former U.S. Attorney General said in a statement, “As a career prosecutor, I’ve always fought to make sure everyone plays by the same set of rules.”

 

Other points in his platform include combating cyber threats and subduing Ohio’s rampant opioid crisis. “I worked hand-in-hand with the dedicated men and women of law enforcement to fight the scourge of opioids and to keep Ohio safe from physical and cyber threats. As Attorney General, my number one priority will always be keeping Ohio safe.”

 

Steven Dettelbach was a prosecuting attorney for over 20 years and served as a U.S. Attorney under the Obama administration from 2009 to 2016. He graduated summa cum lade from Dartmouth College and magna cum lade from Harvard Law School. Before his service as U.S. Attorney, he served as a partner at BakerHostetler, a legal firm he has since returned to and is currently practicing law.
