Tom Horne's Rivals Felecia Rotellini and Mark Brnovich on Channel 3's Politics Unplugged

This Sunday, Channel 3's Politics Unplugged focused on Arizona Attorney General Tom Horne's legal woes, and featured the two candidates who'd like to replace him: Republican Mark Brnovich and Democrat Felecia Rotellini.

Brnovich aims to bump off Horne in the GOP primary, and Rotellini wants a general election re-match with Horne, who bested her by 60,000 votes statewide in 2010.

Both lamented the spectacle of our top prosecutor's being buttressed by criminal defense attorneys and having to face off against prosecutors from the Yavapai County Attorneys Office concerning allegations of campaign-finance shenanigans.
