Attorney General Chris Carr Qualifies for Election

March 5, 2018

ATLANTA – Georgia Attorney General Chris Carr today officially qualified to run for the office of Attorney General in 2018.

“I’m proud of what we have accomplished in the Attorney General’s office since taking office in 2017, and we’re humbled by the support our campaign has already earned here in Georgia,” said Attorney General Carr. “This is a serious role with significant implications, and I look forward to continuing to working together with Georgians to protect our state.”

Carr has already earned endorsements in the 2018 election from Georgia Congressional leaders, the Governor, the Speaker of the Georgia House of Representatives, and the majority of the General Assembly.

The Carr campaign last week announced its statewide grassroots leadership team, and it announced over $1 million raised for the campaign in early January.

Since taking office in 2017, Carr has traveled the state helping spread greater awareness and understanding about the role of the Attorney General’s office. He has been named to a number of state- and national-level leadership positions in the areas he’s focusing on as Attorney General, including fighting to protect Georgia from gangs, federal overreach, the opioid crisis, human trafficking and elder abuse.

Carr also instituted an Open Government Tour in Georgia as part of a larger effort to educate members of the community, elected officials, state record keepers and others about their duties and responsibilities under Georgia’s Open Meetings Act and Open Records Act.
