PHOENIX -- Former Arizona Attorney General Terry Goddard said he's running for secretary of state in 2014.

Goddard left office after two terms as the state's top law enforcement official in January 2011.

He told the Arizona Capitol Times Monday that he decided to run for secretary of state because of his commitment to voter access and his opposition to anonymous "dark money."

Sen. Leah Landrum Taylor is the only Democrat who has filed to run for secretary of state so far.

Goddard said he plans to meet with her soon to discuss the race.

Three Republicans are vying for the Secretary of State's Office -- Mesa businessman Wil Cardon, Rep. Justin Pierce and Sen. Michele Reagan.

Incumbent Secretary of State Ken Bennett is termed out and is running for governor.
