On March 24, 2021, Governor Gavin Newsom announced that he would be appointing Bonta as Attorney General of California to succeed Xavier Becerra, who resigned the position to become Secretary of Health and Human Services under President Joe Biden. He assumed office on April 23, 2021. His current term ends on January 2, 2023.
Bonta (Democratic Party) is running for re-election for Attorney General of California. He is on the ballot in the primary on June 7, 2022.
He is already ringing up endorsements for the election and hiring campaign staff, and he has $2.3 million tucked away in a committee for reelection to the Assembly.
Bonta said. “I feel I have the infrastructure in place and I will be moving from day one with the reelection in mind because it is so proximate in time
Sacramento County Dist. Atty. Anne Marie Schubert is among the people so far considering a challenge to Bonta in 2022 election, a representative confirmed. Schubert, who has been district attorney in Sacramento County since 2014, is the favorite of law enforcement groups and victims’ rights organizations, which say California is too soft on crime as rates increase across the state.
Republican Steven C. Bailey, a retired judge from South Lake Tahoe who placed second to Becerra in 2018, said Friday that he is setting up a campaign committee for a possible run for attorney general next year.
BALINDER SIDHU WROTE:
Mr Attorney General, we are grateful for your time you spared to meet with us. I also want to thank Mr Rangi for making arrangements of our meeting. Please pass our thanks to Gov Newsom for appointing an excellent AG.
We appreciate that you are focused on crime and robo calls. We as small business facing increasing crimes everyday in our stores. When jail releases people at midnight, they head to our 7-11 stores and our employees are subjected to their wrath. There are other concerns we have like if a store employee makes a mistake thee times, we are subjected to three strike laws while criminals can strike our stores with thefts and violence repeatedly without reaching the threshold of three strikes. We look forward to continue our discussions at a future date.
