LANSING, Mich. (AP) - Former Democratic Michigan Attorney General Frank Kelley is endorsing Democrat David Leyton for his old job.
The Genesee County prosecutor says in a statement Wednesday that he is ''honored and humbled'' to receive the backing of Kelley, who served from 1961 through 1998 and is known as a tough consumer protection advocate.
Kelley is now in private law practice. He says Leyton is ''courageous, honest and tough on crime.''
Leyton faces Republican Bill Schuette, Libertarian candidate Daniel Grow and Gerald Van Sickle of the U.S. Taxpayers Party in Tuesday's election for attorney general.
Schuette says Kelley is a good man who was a good attorney general. Schuette says his own endorsements include current Republican state Attorney General Mike Cox.
