HARRISBURG, Pa. (Legal Newsline) -- Pennsylvania Attorney General Kathleen Kane this week denied reports that she is considering a run for governor, less than a year after being elected as the state's top lawyer.

According to the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review, Kane said Monday she has no interest in joining the race.

"I love my job as attorney general," she told reporters after speaking at the annual conference of the National Organization of Black Law Enforcement Executives.

"I think it's the right time and the right place for me right now to represent the people of Pennsylvania."

Kane won the November general election with more than 56 percent of the vote.

She is the first female, and first Democrat, to be elected attorney general in Pennsylvania.
