Del. Bell to run for Virginia attorney general

Another Republican is throwing his hat into the ring for Virginia attorney general now that Ken Cuccinelli (R) has decided to run for governor.

Del. Robert B. Bell (R-Charlottesville), a former state prosecutor, plans to announce his candidacy at a news conference Tuesday.

“I’ve worked as a prosecutor and as a conservative crime fighter in the General Assembly for the past 10 years and I think my work has prepared me to be an effective attorney general,” Bell, 44, said in an interview Monday.

State Sen. Mark Obenshain (R-Harrisonburg) announced last week that he will explore running for attorney general in 2013.
