TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) - Kansas Attorney General Derek Schmidt has been elected by his colleagues in other states and U.S. territories as vice president of their national association.

Schmidt’s office says the two-term Republican received the honor during the recent summer meeting of the National Association of Attorneys General in San Diego.

Schmidt previously has served as the group’s Midwestern regional chairman, the co-chairman of its consumer protection committee and the vice chairman of its committee on combatting human trafficking.

Schmidt served in the Kansas Senate and was its majority leader for six years before being elected attorney general in 2010. He was re-elected last year.
