The Democratic Attorneys General Association (DAGA) is a United States national political advocacy group that focuses on electing Democrats as state attorneys general. Its Republican counterpart is the Republican Attorneys General Association.


DAGA was formed in 2002.[1]

Its executive committee is made up of Nevada Attorney General Aaron Ford, Attorney General of Delaware Kathy Jennings, Attorney General of Minnesota Keith Ellison, Illinois Attorney General Kwame Raoul, Connecticut Attorney General William Tong, Attorney General of California Rob Bonta and Oregon Attorney General Ellen Rosenblum.[2]

Position on abortion

In 2019, the group announced that it would not endorse any candidate who did not support abortion, despite the only pro-life Democratic attorney general being Mississippi Attorney General Jim Hood. This decision was criticized by former Senator Heidi Heitkamp.[3]
