BOSTON (AP) - Democratic attorney general candidate Maura Healey is highlighting her expertise in the courtroom and on the basketball court in her first television ad.

The 30-second spot set to begin running Tuesday focuses on what Healey has portrayed as her fight to protect consumers against subprime mortgage lenders and to guarantee women’s access to health care clinics during her seven years in the attorney general’s office.

Healey is planning to keep ads on the air through the Sept. 9 primary.

Healey is a former captain of the Harvard University women’s basketball team and spent two years playing professional basketball in Austria.

Healey and former state Sen. Warren Tolman are vying for the Democratic nomination for attorney general.

The winner will face off against Republican candidate John Miller in the November general election.
