Attorney General: Marshall, King go to runoff

The Republican primary for attorney general is headed to a runoff between current Attorney General Steve Marshall and former Attorney General Troy King.

Marshall and King topped a field of four Republicans vying for the nomination. The runoff will be July 17. Marshall was appointed to the position last year.

King held the office for six years, but was defeated in the 2010 GOP primary.

On the Democratic side, Joseph Siegelman, the son of former Gov. Don Siegelman, has won the Democratic nomination for attorney general. Siegelman defeated Birmingham attorney Chris Christie.

The younger Siegelman is making his first run for public office. He will face the Republican nominee in November.
