LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) — A former federal consumer product regulator dropped his bid for the Arkansas Legislature Wednesday and is now trying to unseat the state's Republican attorney general.

Mike Lee filed paperwork to seek the Democratic nomination to challenge Republican Attorney General Leslie Rutledge. Lee, 70, is the first Democrat to announce a race against Rutledge, who filed last week to seek re-election.


Arkansas Attorney General Leslie Rutledge is one of the many speakers that will participate in this week's Republican National Convention.  Here this morning's interview with Steve Inskeep during Morning Edition as she talks about this week's Convention in Cleveland and the presumptive nominee Donald Trump.
