Arizona

See also: Arizona attorney general election, 2014

A March 2013 report released by Governing named Arizona's attorney general seat as "vulnerable" to partisan switch heading into the 2014 elections. The rating was based on incumbent Tom Horne's controversy-riddled prelude to re-election. Horne, a Republican first elected in 2010, is the subject of an ongoing FBI investigation stemming from an alleged hit and run incident. This blight, in addition to his rumored extra-marital affair with a staffer, led Horne to forgo his planned gubernatorial campaign in favor of seeking another term in his current post.[1] Although Arizona tends to vote Republican, especially on state row, Democrats have placed early hopes in the candidacy of 2010 AZ gubernatorial nominee and Assistant Attorney General Felecia Rotellini. Rotellini's background as superintendent of the state Department of Financial Institutions bodes well for her fundraising potential, thus her strength as a challenger to Horne in 2014.[1]

Colorado

See also: Colorado attorney general election, 2014

A March 2013 report in Governing named Colorado's attorney general seat as "vulnerable" to partisan switch heading into the 2014 elections. Incumbent attorney general John Suthers, a Republican first appointed in 2005 and elected to two subsequent full terms, is barred by term limits from running again in 2014. Vying for the open seat is Democrat Don Quick, who is considered "a strong contender to flip the seat." Undeclared Republican hopefuls as of the report's release date include Mark Waller, the State House Minority Leader, and attorney general office deputy Cynthia Coffman. Against the backdrop of Colorado's "purple" partisan landscape, this race, as well as other statewide seats opening in 2014, present competitive enticement to the non-incumbent party to assert control over new offices and territory.[2]
