Statement from Hawaii AG Doug Chin:   January 7, 2017

"I am stepping down as Attorney General so that I can run for Congress with the same intensity and energy that I bring to working for Hawaii each day.

“In three years as Attorney General, I prosecuted public corruption, got justice for victims of consumer fraud and sexual violence, fought for the civil rights of the LGBT community, and defended women’s access to reproductive healthcare. And I challenged the Trump administration on every illegal, unconstitutional action that harmed Hawaii and threatened our nation’s values.

“I am grateful to Governor Ige for the incredible opportunity to serve our state alongside some of the finest attorneys and public servants in Hawaii.”
