Former Alabama attorney general Troy King has filed paperwork with the Alabama Secretary of State's Office to run for attorney general in the 2018 general election.

According to online records, King registered a campaign committee to run as a Republican on Nov. 13. He currently has a law firm in Montgomery.

King was appointed attorney general in 2004 by governor Bob Riley, after William Pryor left the office for a federal judge position with the Eleventh Circuit Court of Appeals. King was elected to the position in 2006 but lost a GOP primary race to Luther Strange in 2010.

Strange left the attorney general's office earlier this year after being appointed to an open U.S. Senate seat. He was replaced by then-Marshall County district attorney Steve Marshall.

Other Republican candidates who have filed are Marshall, former U.S. Attorney Alice Martin and Birmingham attorney Chess Bedsole.

One Democrat, Birmingham attorney James Christie, has filed for the election.
