Bentley will name a new state attorney general after appointing Luther Strange Thursday to the U.S. Senate. But the circumstances that led to his appointment as the successor to Jeff Sessions may be equally curious.

Bentley took heat from critics Thursday for appointing odd to the Senate - thus clearing a path for Bentley to appoint Strange's successor. Normally, the selection of a state's attorney general to temporarily assume a Senate seat would not generate much controversy. "I know he will be a great Attorney General who will uphold the laws of this state and serve the people of Alabama with fairness".

Those interviews came on the heels of Bentley accompanying odd to Washington on Thursday to be sworn in as senator replacing Jeff Sessions, who was confirmed earlier this week as U.S. Attorney General.

House Judiciary Committee chairman Rep. Mike Jones, R-Andalusia, said Thursday that House members would likely sit down with the new attorney general a week after the appointment to discuss the status of the investigation.

Marshall has served as the District Attorney for the 27th Judicial Circuit, which is comprised of Marshall County, since 2001.

"You're investigating the man who just appointed you, and I know Steve Marshall and, like I said, I know no details about anything officially, but all I need to know is that Steve's honest and he's fair". Tom Whatley, R-Auburn, and state Sen.

While practicing in Marshall County, he served as a legal analyst for the Alabama House of Representatives for several legislative sessions.

Marshall served as the prosecutor in Arab and Albertville municipal courts and was also the municipal attorney for the city of Arab.

"As Attorney General, we will continue to support their efforts to keep Alabamians safe and free from violent crime".

Marshall received votes of confidence from AG finalists Bryan Taylor and Phil Williams.

"Whether it is me or someone else, it is imperative, for the good of the state, that the Governor appoint someone whose personal integrity and commitment to the law are beyond question", Williams added.

Williams said he had never met Marshall but wished him the best.

"This is a good day for all of Alabama and especially for the rule of Law, justice and victims of crime in Alabama".

"I know DAs from across the state, and if Steve Marshall was from Mobile, I'd be saying the same thing". Cam Ward; state Sen. "His service to Alabama as a U.S. Senator will be greatly missed", Williams said. General Marshall is well respected across the state and we look forward to working with him in his new role.
