The Attorney General’s race in Alabama has started to get pretty heated and already has gotten sort of nasty. All of this started when certain powerful groups found an attack dog to put in the race against the incumbent Troy King. Since his entry, Luther Strange – the lawyer lobbyist – has constantly been on the attack. But from all accounts Luther’s efforts haven’t gained him any real support around the state. In fact, this type campaign, and especially this early, may wind up hurting Luther beyond repair. At some point, he might even have to discuss who some of his financial backers are and that may happen sooner than he will want to talk about it.
According to a number of polls, most folks believe Troy has done an outstanding job as Attorney General and deserves to be reelected. He has taken on some powerful groups by simply doing his job as the State of Alabama’s chief law enforcement officer. But he has learned that when you take on powerful groups such as the drug manufacturers, you can expect them to retaliate and that’s obviously what we are seeing in this race. It started with a number of rumors, followed by a grand jury investigation, and then an announced opponent comes along with strong backing from some of Troy’s biggest enemies. I don’t believe Troy should sit back and run a defensive campaign this time. He has a good record and it’s one that folks around the state seem to like. Most polls indicate that the voters will respond favorably on Election Day.
