SCRANTON, Pa. (AP) – Pennsylvania’s embattled attorney general says she’s going to publicly discuss the future of her office on the deadline day to file signatures to get on the April 26 primary ballot.
Kathleen Kane says she’ll make the announcement at 1:30 p.m. Tuesday in Scranton.
Kane is the first Democrat and first woman elected to the office. But she’s fighting criminal charges for allegedly leaking grand jury material to a newspaper, and the state Supreme Court voted unanimously last year to suspend her law license.
She has discussed the possibility of running for a second term. But she’s facing stiff resistance from within her party in the primary and she isn’t backed by any identifiable campaign organization.
The Department of State hasn’t reported receiving signatures from Kane yet.
