TUCSON, Ariz. — Singer, songwriter and musician John Legend is making his voice heard on the race for Pima County Attorney.

In several tweets Wednesday, Legend listed candidates for prosecutor offices around the country that he is following, and the candidates he thinks are right for the job.

In Pima County, Legend says he supports Laura Conover as the top prosecutor, saying she "will focus prosecution resources on the most serious cases as Pima County District Attorney, while redirecting those in need to the right services rather than jailing them."

Conover is running against fellow Democrats Jonathon Mosher and Mark Diebolt, both prosecutors in the Pima County Attorney's Office. The primary election is Aug. 4.
