Opinion: The attorney general, secretary of state and state treasurer are all running for higher office. Why aren’t these appointed positions?

Although not a Catholic, I seem to spend a considerable amount of time in this space offering devotions to St. Jude, the patron saint of lost causes.
Today’s offering is to the cause of appointing, rather than electing, state officers other than governor.
Our attorney general, Mark Brnovich, is running for U.S. Senate.
Our secretary of state, Katie Hobbs, is running for governor.
As is the state treasurer, Kimberly Yee.
Politicians can’t help but be politicians
