The Republican Attorneys General Association (RAGA) was founded in 2000. The group says that it "is the only national organization whose mission is electing Republicans to the Office of Attorney General. The RAGA concentrates on recruiting outstanding candidates, providing them with research and financial support, as well as, assisting in message development. In doing so, the RAGA is improving the talent base from which many future Governors and U.S. Senators will be drawn."
