Rep. Justin Pierce, R-Mesa, says he’s running for the Arizona Secretary of State’s Office, but after his speech to the Kingman Republican Men’s Club, it sounds like he’d rather be the Arizona Attorney General.

Pierce told the club members that he wants the Secretary of State to be able to prosecute people who fraudulently vote in a state election.

“Your vote will not be canceled out by someone who shouldn’t be voting,” he said. “I want to make sure the Secretary of State’s Office has some prosecutorial authority in case the governor is reluctant to do so.”

Pierce was the guest at the club’ meeting Monday. He is the son of Arizona Corporation Commissioner Gary Pierce.
