Steve Cooley wins GOP attorney general's race
Los Angeles County Dist. Atty. Steve Cooley won the Republican primary for attorney general Tuesday, besting former Chapman Law School Dean John Eastman and Sen. Tom Harman (R-Orange.)
Both of Cooley's opponents called him to concede the race Tuesday.
Cooley has been an outspoken critic of the state's three-strikes sentencing law and ultimately resigned from the California District Attorneys Assn. over the issue.
San Francisco Dist. Atty. Kamala Harris leads a crowded field in the Democratic primary.
