Pennsylvania’s embattled attorney general said Tuesday that she will not run for another term in office, revealing her decision hours before a deadline to submit signatures to make the primary ballot.
Attorney General Kathleen Kane announced the decision at an afternoon news conference in her hometown of Scranton, about a week after she narrowly survived a Senate vote to remove her from the office she has held since 2013.
“This was not an easy decision, but the decision today I am comfortable with, I will sleep well with,” Kane told reporters.
Kane, the first woman and first Democrat elected to the office, has seen a tumultuous two years in which she was charged for allegedly leaking investigative information to a newspaper to smear rivals and had her law license suspended by the state Supreme Court.
