Evangelos Argyrakis, an Omaha attorney, has filed as a Democratic candidate for attorney general. He said if he were elected he would prioritize laws regarding the abuse and neglect of children. The office of the attorney general in Nebraska has been held by a Republican for almost 8 decades. Argyrakis said he know’s it will be extremely difficult to be elected but was heartened by a Doug Jones, a democrat winning the Senate race in Alabama. Another area of concern for Argyrakis is scams that target the elderly. Argyrakis is a first generation American and he graduated from Creighton Law in 1992.
