Former US Attorney Announces Bid For State Attorney General

Sep 28, 2017

A former West Michigan U-S Attorney wants to be Michigan’s next Attorney General. Michigan Public Radio’s Cheyna Roth reports.


Pat Miles has a list of issues he wants to take on if elected attorney general. That list includes government corruption, violent crime, and consumer protection.

An area he is especially focused on is the opioid epidemic.

“I really think that Michigan has done too little too late to battle this epidemic. It’s a public health crisis.”

Miles was appointed to his U-S Attorney post by President Barack Obama. He voluntarily resigned when President Donald Trump took office.

Current Attorney General Bill Schuette is term limited and running for governor.
