Patricia Nation formally endorsed Rutledge this morning for attorney general. Nation picked up 14% of the vote in Tuesday night's primary. Not enough to advance to a runoff.
"Leslie has the right experience, the knowledge for the role of the Attorney General's Office and her public service is unmatched."
Rutledge will now face fellow Republican AG Candidate David Sterling in the runoff set for June 10.
