As the Democratic political landscape shifted this week, three or four new Republican contenders leapt into the race for attorney general.
"They only want to do what's easy," said Martha Dean, who's been seeking the GOP nomination for the attorney general's post for months.
The newcomers, she said, may perceive the race is easier now, but they're not taking into account one important thing: they have to get past Dean.
Dean argued that she proved in 2002 that she can pull 50,000 or more new voters to the Republican side and she is confident she can take it to the Democrats this time around.
Dean said she is not about to roll over and let one of the politicians who have jumped in grab the nomination now.
