Next up on the Dem candidates for AG hot seat: Mike Schmier. Schmier has been an employee rights attorney for 35 years and owns a private practice law firm in Emeryville, California. In 2006, he successfully convinced Federal Courts to allow people the right of fair defense; now he wants to extend that right to Californians. This is Schmier’s third attempt to win the AG seat. The underdog’s campaign centers on changing a crime-filled justice system. Will his law background be enough to win him votes? Where does Schmier really stand with voters? What message is he hoping to get out there?
