SALT LAKE CITY (AP) - Salt Lake County District Attorney Sim Gill announced Tuesday morning that he’s running for re-election this fall.

The Democrat is in the middle of several high-profile cases, including an investigation of two of the state’s former attorneys general and a wide-ranging probe of the police department in West Valley City, Utah’s second-largest city.

Gill said Tuesday that he’s considered running for state attorney general but feels he has more work to do at the county level.

Republican Steve Nelson, a criminal prosecutor in Gill’s office, is challenging his boss for the office this year.

Nelson has worked in the office for 11 years and told the Deseret News recently that he has a good relationship with Gill and the decision to run was not personal.
