Nicrosi announces run for AG


Former federal prosecutor Michel Nicrosi of Daphne has decided to run for attorney general, saying the position needs a prosecutor and not a politician.
The Democrat announced Thursday she has formed a campaign committee.
Nicrosi, a standout in academics and athletics at Montgomery Academy, served 16 years as a federal prosecutor and was chief of the Criminal Division in Alabama's southern district.
"If we want to finally clean up this state and keep our families safe,we don't need another politician as attorney general. We've had plenty of those. We need a prosecutor," she said in a statement. "That's what I’ve been for most of my adult life."
Two prominent Republicans have announced they are running, incumbent Troy King who is vying for his second term and Birmingham lawyer and former lobbyist Luther Strange. Strange beat a field of Republicans in the 2006
Republican primary for lieutenant governor, but lost to Jim Folsom Jr. in the general election.
Giles Perkins, a Birmingham attorney and former executive director of the Alabama Democratic Party, said in October that he would vie for his party's nomination for attorney general.
