Maricopa County attorney candidates: Mitchell, Godbehere, Wooten

Three people, two Republicans and one Democrat, have filed to run for Maricopa County Attorney.

Current County Attorney Rachel Mitchell was first appointed to the position in 2022 following the resignation of Alistair Adell. Mitchell won election to serve out the remainder of Adell's term later that year, defeating Democratic candidate Julie Gunnigle.

Prior to his appointment, Mitchell served as director of the county attorney's office, overseeing the prosecution team, specifically the sex crimes bureau. Because of her experience, she was appointed by the U.S. Senate Judiciary Committee to testify during Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh's hearings in 2018.
