Ohio Auditor Announces Run For Attorney General

COLUMBUS, Ohio - Ohio's Auditor is looking to move into another state office. 

State Auditor Dave Yost announced Tuesday that he will run for Attorney General in 2018, promising that he will "fight for right."

Yost was first elected to the auditor's office in 2010 and re-elected in 2014. He is term limited from running for the office again. 

"As a former prosecutor, and as your Auditor of State, I have fought to find the truth and to bring forth justice," Yost said. "I will continue that fight as your Attorney General -- in the courts or in City Hall, from the streets to the Statehouse."

Before becoming auditor, Yost spent eight years as the Delaware County Prosecutor, where he successfully tried the county's first capital murder case.
