State Representative Diego Rodriguez announced Thursday that he is joining the Democratic primary for Attorney General in Arizona.

Rodriguez joins three Republicans and a Democrat in the race.

In a campaign video released on Twitter, Rodriguez talked about making the Attorney General’s office work for everyone.

“For too long the Attorney General’s office hasn’t been doing its number one job and that’s fighting for the people of Arizona. The system right now just isn’t working for everyday Arizonans,” he said.
