Conservative Mark Brnovich resigns as gaming director to run against Tom Horne for Attorney General

Yavapai County Attorney Sheila Polk is investigating the allegations that Horne illegally coordinated with an independent expenditure committee run by Kathleen Winn in 2010 during his first campaign for attorney general.
