Anderson to go against Strange for Attorney General

Posted by: Melissa McKinney - bio | email

MONTGOMERY, AL (WSFA) - With family and friends behind him, Democratic Attorney General candidate James Anderson couldn't be happier with the run-off results.

"I'm just very humbled and pleased with the support that we had all over the state," says Anderson.

With the run-off behind him, he says it's time to focus on November's election.

"I'm really looking forward to November.  I think the state is ready for somebody that's a real attorney."

Anderson says that's what sets him apart from his Republican opponent--Luther Strange.

"We're going to work hard and we're going to go to the people, and we're going to show there's a true alternative to the Washington lobbyist and somebody who's made their living representing people and companies all over the state of Alabama."

Anderson admits, the race against Strange will be tough.  One of the biggest issues on the table?  The gulf oil spill.

"That's going to be one of the biggest challenges we have about what the state's going to do with this disaster. And so I'm looking forward to getting more and more prepared for this."

Anderson says he has big plans for the Attorney General's office.

"I want to make the Attorney General's office a place people want to work at."

Anderson says he and his Democratic opponent, Giles Perkins in Birmingham are good friends.

He expects it to stay that way even after the runoff race.

    More than half of the 17 people killed when a tourist boat sank on a Branson lake were members of the same Indiana family, and they likely wouldn't have been on the ill-fated trip but for a ticket mix-up.
