DAGA Announces Delaware AG Kathy Jennings as New Co-Chair
November 29, 2021
Washington, DC — The Democratic Attorneys General Association (DAGA) announced today new leadership for 2022 as the committee prepares for the upcoming midterm elections where 30 Attorney General seats will be on the ballot across the country. Delaware AG Kathy Jennings joins Nevada AG Aaron Ford as a Co-Chair to lead the committee and focus on protecting Democratic incumbents and flipping red seats to blue.
Outgoing DAGA Co-Chair Massachusetts AG Maura Healey will remain on DAGA’s Executive Committee as Chair Emerita. Illinois AG Kwame Raoul will join the DAGA Executive Committee as its newest member alongside Oregon AG Ellen Rosenblum, Connecticut AG William Tong, and District of Columbia AG Karl Racine.
“I’m grateful for the opportunity to help lead DAGA. We come from states as small as Delaware, as big as California, and everywhere in between — but our constituents share the same aspirations, overcome the same challenges, and deserve leaders who will fight for them and get results. Democratic AGs continue to show how effective we are when we work together, and I’m looking forward to helping my colleagues succeed in the fight to protect our democracy and our future,” said Delaware AG Kathy Jennings, incoming Co-Chair of the Democratic Attorneys General Association.
“I’m so excited to have AG Jennings join me as a DAGA Co-Chair. She will play a significant role in leading the organization forward into the 2022 cycle. She is a national leader in keeping families and kids safe, protecting consumers, and taking on corruption,” said Nevada AG Aaron Ford, Co-Chair of the Democratic Attorneys General Association. “We also welcome AG Raoul as our newest member of the DAGA Executive Committee. I look forward to working with both AG Jennings and AG Raoul to defend our incumbent AGs and flip seats across the country.
“We want to thank AG Healey for her time serving as Co-Chair and welcome her as our Chair Emerita on the Executive Committee. She’s been a tireless champion for those who need a voice and a lawyer, and she’s fearlessly taken on some of the biggest fights facing our country today. She helped secure a win for all of our incumbent Democratic AGs in 2020, including key battleground states like North Carolina and Pennsylvania,” said AG Ford.
