Paul Levikow, a spokesman for District Attorney Bonnie Dumanis, called me back just now and explained why Dumanis didn’t contradict herself by endorsing her lieutenant for the city attorney’s post.

He said that she said, orally, during a press conference in February that she would endorse candidates for the City Attorney’s Office, judge races, the sheriff and attorney general.

“She said specifically she would endorse in all offices that have a direct effect on her office and the administering of justice,” Levikow said.

This caveat was not reflected in the DA’s press release that day.
