Louisiana Attorney General Jeff Landry is the new President-elect of the National Association of Attorneys General.

"I am humbled by my fellow Attorneys General electing me to serve in this leadership role," says Landry in a statement from his office. "The National Association of Attorneys General (NAAG) has a great track record of AG's, across party lines, working together for the betterment of our country; and being chosen in this bi-partisan way to serve as President-Elect reflects that."

Landry was elected to the position by his peers during its summer meeting last week. Connecticut Attorney General George Jepsen was elected to the top post in the summer of 2016.
