Troy King announced last month that he will run for re-election in 2010. Troy says he has more to do to keep his promise of making Alabama a safer place in which to live. The Attorney General announced his plans in a speech to the Greater Birmingham Young Republicans Club. The announcement came two days after news reports that what appears to be a politically-motivated federal grand jury was at work in Montgomery. I am not sure who is behind this investigation, but based on media reports it appears more political than criminal in nature. The strangest part of this news is that grand jury work is supposed to be confidential.
There is talk that there will be others – both Republicans and Democrats – getting into the Attorney General race. Birmingham lawyer Luther Strange, who was the Republican nominee for lieutenant governor in 2006, is said to be considering running for Attorney General next year. Media reports indicate that Troy made an early announcement because he wanted the people of Alabama to know his plans. Frankly, I believe he made the right decision in running for reelection instead of getting into the Governor’s race.
