LITTLE ROCK, AR  --  Leslie Rutledge won last night's runoff as the GOP nominee for Arkansas Attorney General.

She says her campaign was a grass roots effort and adds that she fought off one million dollars in ads against her from opponent David Sterling.

Rutledge says her focus for November is just like it was in the primary election. She wants to protect Arkansans from scams, internet predators, overreaching federal government and criminals.

State Representative Nate Steel is her democratic challenger in November. The Libertarian Party's Aaron Cash is also in the race.
