I think it’s very likely that Governor Riley will eventually confirm Bill Pryor’s deputy Richard Allen to the AG post. Allen is serving as interim AG; Pryor got the job originally the same way, appointed to fill out the term of his boss Jeff Sessions when the Evil Little Troll was elected to the Senate. Unlike Pryor, Allen says he wouldn’t run for re-election.
There are a number of other candidates, including the aptly named Terry Butts, Roy Moore’s former chief attorney in his suits to preserve the Granite Calf. Me, I’m going to suggest to Frank Raddish that he demand that Moore be appointed to the job.
