In this audio interview, Fairfax County’s Commonwealth Attorney Steve Descano (D) talks about everything happening in Virginia politics right now along with what is happening in the Republican recall movement against him and the status of that effort.
Descano also talked about the recent statements from Attorney General-elect Jason Miyares when he expressed a desire to go into localities and intervene in cases when officials think a local prosecutor is mishandling a case. “My initial response was that it is silly,” Descano said. “It doesn’t make any sense. Quite frankly what we have is Jason Miyares wants to cosplay as a prosecutor.”
He also talks about what he would like to see from the Democratic Party moving forward. He believes one priority for the party should be to “focus on propelling our vision for the commonwealth, instead of presenting as counter to someone else.”
Descano finished by answering a question about whether or not he is considering running for attorney general in 2025. Listen to the full interview below:
