The Pitt News, 04/13/23

A Pitt professor is considering a run for Pennsylvania attorney general, adding to the growing number of Pitt faculty choosing to run for public office.

Eugene DePasquale, an adjunct law professor at Pitt, will officially launch his campaign for attorney general in June for the Democratic party, and he sat down with The Pitt News to discuss his plans for the November 2024 election. If elected, DePasquale said he plans to continue teaching at Pitt “if the schedule allows it and the school is okay with it.”

Previously, DePasquale served in the Pennsylvania House from 2006-12 and then won the race for auditor general while concurrently being reelected to the state House in 2012, going on to serve two terms before leaving his post in 2020 due to term limitations.
