Complaint filed against attorney general candidate Brnovich

Republican Mark Brnovich and Democrat Felecia Rotellini will square off for the Arizona Attorney General's Office.

Arizona AG candidates Republican Mark Brnovich and Democrat Felecia Rotellini.

The Arizona Democratic Party wants an investigation into whether Republican attorney general candidate Mark Brnovich failed to register as a lobbyist in 2006.

Brnovich testified before a state Senate committee opposing a proposed law that would have barred private prison companies from accepting violent offenders from outside Arizona.

Brnovich testified on behalf of private prison company Corrections Corporation of America but didn’t register as a lobbyist until almost a year later.

The Democrats want the secretary of state’s office to investigate and send the case to the attorney general if it finds wrongdoing.

Brnovich’s campaign manager didn’t immediately respond to a request for comment Tuesday evening.

Brnovich is facing Democrat Felecia Rotellini in next month’s general election.
