PHOENIX (AP) - Democrat Felecia Rotellini is signaling her intent to run again for Arizona Attorney General.

The former prosecutor and bank regulator was defeated by Republican Tom Horne for the state's top prosecutor jobs in the 2010 election. The race was close, with Horne winning by approximately 63,000 votes out of a total of 1.6 million ballots cast.

She filed documents with the Arizona Secretary of State's Office Monday creating a campaign committee and her spokesman says she's running for the office. Former U.S. Surgeon General and 2012 U.S. Senate candidate Richard Carmona is listed as the chairman of her campaign.

Horne considered running for governor in 2014 but is embroiled in a campaign financed case stemming from his race against Rotellini and has said he'll instead seek re-election.

Statement by Felecia Rotellini

I want to make Arizona safer for families, children and law-abiding businesses. We need new direction in the Attorney General's Office - a top law enforcement officer committed to rising above partisan politics. We need an Attorney General to fight criminals whether they carry a gun or a pen, human smugglers and traffickers, those who don't play by the rules, and scammers who defraud our seniors.
 
The Attorney General should be an independent watchdog, not a career politician that promotes himself or is accused of violating laws he is supposed to enforce. The circus act has to stop; we must restore integrity back into the Attorney General's Office.

    It appears the subway bedbug problem we've been reporting is getting worse. Commuters already have to contend with sweltering platforms, scurrying rats and packed train cars, and now there's another transit woe: fear of bedbugs.
