Michigan election critic says he’s running for attorney general

Matthew DePerno

Lansing — Attorney Matthew DePerno, whom Michigan Senate Republicans accused of spreading “demonstrably false” information about the 2020 election, says he’s launching a campaign for attorney general.

DePerno announced his bid at about 1 a.m. Thursday morning in a press release. The Kalamazoo lawyer has led litigation over the vote in conservative Antrim County, where human errors by election workers initially and incorrectly showed Democrat Joe Biden as the county’s winner.

“DePerno will engage in impartial criminal investigations and will follow and enforce the law,” his press release said. “He is committed to being a servant of the people in the role of Michigan state attorney general.”

DePerno’s press release didn’t specify his party affiliation, but conservative radio host Randy Bishop, who interviewed him Thursday morning, said DePerno is seeking the GOP nomination. He hasn’t yet formed an official campaign committee, according to state records. Michigan Attorney General Dana Nessel, a Democrat, is expected to run for reelection in 2022.
