PHOENIX (AP) - The Arizona Secretary of State’s office has closed a complaint filed by the Democratic Party into whether Republican attorney general candidate Mark Brnovich failed to register as a lobbyist in 2006.

The secretary of state said Thursday that Brnovich’s lawyer provided information showing he was exempt from registration requirements.

Brnovich signed in at a state Senate committee as opposing a proposed law that would have barred private prison companies from accepting violent offenders from outside Arizona. Brnovich was working for private prison company Corrections Corporation of America at the time.

The Democrats wanted the secretary of state’s office to investigate and send the case to the attorney general if it finds wrongdoing.

Brnovich is facing Democrat Felecia Rotellini in next month’s general election.
