Paul Zukerberg Asks Highest D.C. Court to Put Office of Attorney General on Primary Ballot

Paul Zukerberg, the only candidate who filed in any District of Columbia primary to run for Attorney General, has asked the D.C. Court of Appeals to reverse a lower court ruling and put the Office of Attorney General, and his name, on the Democratic Party primary ballot. The primary is being held April 1.

Meanwhile, the current Attorney General of Washington, D.C., who was appointed, suggested that the bill pending in the city council to elect that office only in November, without party nominees, violates the City Charter. The City Charter amendment passed by the voters in 2010 said elections for Attorney General would be partisan. See this story.
