DAGA Winter Policy Conference, November 20-21, 2019, New Orleans, Louisiana

Twenty Democratic Attorneys General descended upon New Orleans for DAGA’s Winter Policy conference. Attorneys General William Tong (Connecticut), Clare Connors (Hawaii), Dana Nessel (Michigan) and Josh Kaul (Wisconsin) shared their insights on a panel discussing successes and challenges in working with local government. The keynote lunch featured Rob Tadlock, Associate General Counsel at Patagonia, in a discussion about corporate environmental responsibility. A panel of national political consultants dazzled the audience with their prognosis of the presidential race and useful messaging as DAGA prepares for 2020 state Attorney General races. Now that RAGA and DAGA have tragically decided to attack incumbent state Attorneys General seats, much discussion was focused on maintaining the seats held by Attorneys General Josh Stein (North Carolina) and Josh Shapiro (Pennsylvania). Finally, in Democratic circles, many are buzzing about former state Attorneys General Catherine Cortez Masto (Nevada), Kamala Harris (California), who is mentioned on the shortlist of vice presidential hopefuls, and Steve Bullock (Montana) running for the Senate.
