As Shapiro challenger announces, 2020 row office races begin to take shape

At least one candidate has announced their plans to take on Attorney General Josh Shapiro in the next election, with Pittsburgh lawyer Heather Heidelbaugh announcing Tuesday she plans to seek the GOP nomination in the race.

In addition to her work at the law firm Leech Tishman, Heidelbaugh also represented the Republican State Committee in a 2009 suit against the liberal activist group ACORN for voter fraud--a move that gained her national attention, including an appearance before a Congressional committee investigating the matter. She also served as an at-large member of Allegheny County Council from 2011 to 2015.
