AG Fired Up to Run Again

As media and politicians alike continue to question her political viability and future as a candidate, an energetic and politically-charged Peg Lautenschlager seized the attention of the convention -- delivering a heated speech to a roaring crowd, blasting critics and conservatives for labeling her an activist attorney general.

"Do they want a passive one?," she asked.

"If an activist attorney general is one who emphatically believes that now is the time for the war on all public employees to be over - than I am an activist attorney general.

"If an activist attorney general is one who takes tough stands on women's rights, global warming, against the underfunding of child left behind and who calls the law as I see it... consequences and conventional wisdom be damned... I am an activist attorney general.

"I look forward to continuing to serve as your attorney general"
