Fishwick Exits

Democrat John Fishwick ended his quest for Attorney General yesterday. He cited his interest in representing regular folks and small businesses in state and federal cases. Fishwick said he'd pay campaign expenses and then return the remaining money to donors. He raised about $160,000.
Fishwick's highest profile case in recent months was the lawsuit brought by a W&L professor against the Virginia Lottery charging they continued selling tickets for prizes that were no longer available. The case brought him some celebrity, including a brief appearance on Dr. Phil.
Fishwick's exit leaves Delegate Steve Shannon of Fairfax as the only Democrat seeking the nomination.
