Liz Murrill sailed to victory in today’s election for Louisiana Attorney General. Murrill, who has served as the Louisiana Solicitor General since 2016, will replace Jeff Landry, who was elected Governor outright in last month’s primary election. The Republican Attorneys General Association (RAGA) supported Murrill’s campaign through a substantial, statewide paid advertising campaign.
“As our nation faces unprecedented threats, both foreign and domestic, that jeopardize our freedoms and way of life, there is no time for an inexperienced lawyer to learn on the job while leading the Office of the Louisiana Attorney General,” said RAGA Chairman and Utah Attorney General Sean Reyes. “Liz Murrill will make an immediate and positive impact, and I look forward to collaborating with her to protect the Constitution and rule of law.”
Earlier this month, Republicans retained control of attorney general offices in Kentucky and Mississippi. Murrill’s victory cements a 100% success rate for RAGA in the 2023 election cycle.
“From state courts all the way to the United States Supreme Court, there are few litigators in the conservative legal movement who have had has big of an impact as Liz Murrill,” said RAGA Executive Director Peter Bisbee. “I have worked alongside Liz for nearly a decade and am proud that one of our nation’s best attorneys will be able to continue her important work defending the Constitution and rule of law as the next Attorney General of Louisiana.”
