Phoenix, AZ— Maricopa County Attorney Allister Adel issued the following statement this evening upon securing the Republican nomination for Maricopa County Attorney:
“Tonight, Arizonans across Maricopa County participated in our Primary Election resulting in historic turnout. I would like to thank the voters of Maricopa County for their support as I seek election as Maricopa County Attorney in November. Now more than ever, we need strong and ethical leadership within our criminal justice system. I have focused my tenure as county attorney on creating a culture driven by ethical excellence and making the right decisions for the right reasons each day.
