King responds to attack from Strange



The following is a response from Alabama Attorney General Troy King to the attack from Birmingham attorney Luther Strange. Both men have announced they are running for the Republican nomination for attorney general in 2010. Strange attacked King, saying "unfortunately, ethical lapses, impropriety and incompetence have plagued the office throughout the last five years."

"In 2006, I was challenged in the Republican primary," King said in a statement. "I ran my campaign based on my record of protecting Alabama families from child predators, violent crime, sex offenders, drug dealers, senior citizen scam artists, and consumer fraud. The voters responded by giving me a 50 percentage point margin of victory. Since then, I have built upon and expanded that record of service, and I look forward to proudly running on it again. Today’s distortions have sent this campaign into the gutters of Alabama politics before it even begins. Alabamians deserve better than that."

"50 percentage point margin of victory"? I believe Tyson made it close.
