In defeat, AG King deciding what to do next

Alabama Attorney General Troy King

MONTGOMERY, Ala.(AP) - Attorney General Troy King at the still young age of 41 has completed six years as Alabama's top lawyer but, after his loss in the primary, says he has little idea what he will do next.

Having lost the Republican primary to Birmingham lawyer Luther Strange, King leaves office on Jan. 17 with his political dreams at least temporarily derailed. Those dreams included another four years in the attorney general's office and a possible future run for the governor's office.

But King is certain his future will not include a return to his old job working as an attorney in the AG's office. A former merit system employee, he could be eligible to return to work as an attorney for the new AG.
