Ohio Auditor Dave Yost says he'll run for state attorney general
COLUMBUS — Republican state Auditor Dave Yost announced today he will run for attorney general, becoming the second statewide official to solidify his 2018 election intentions.
The announcement confirmed what many already expected. Yost hasn’t hidden his interest in the attorney general’s office, a post he initially pursued before running for state auditor seven years ago.
“As a former prosecutor and as your auditor of state, I have fought to find the truth and to bring forth justice,” Yost said in a released statement. “I will continue that fight as your attorney general – in the courts or in city hall, from the streets to the Statehouse.”
