A former statewide candidate for auditor and former Hamilton County Commissioner David Pepper has announced he’s running for Ohio Attorney General.

Ohio Public Radio's Jo Ingles reports he’s among the first Democrats to declare for statewide office in 2014.

While he hasn’t formally announced his intention to run for attorney general, Democrat David Pepper says he has submitted the paperwork. He wants to challenge current Attorney General Mike DeWine in 2014. Pepper says he’d do more to focus on important consumer issues.  And there’s something he says he would not do.

“One thing I want to not do is have that office caught up in the ideological, far right-wing disputes and that’s what we have seen recently,” Pepper said.  “The whole fight over contraception to me is a great example of what not to do.” 

Attorney General Mike DeWine says he’s aware of the 2014 election, but he’s more focused on what’s going on in Ohio right now.  

"My focus is frankly on protecting Ohio’s families and doing my job. It is going to be a busy week.  So there’s a lot going on in the attorney general’s office and frankly, I’m not focused on the next election.”

Pepper says he will make an official announcement for the post later this year.
