Executive summary: Attorney General of Alabama, 2004-11

"I often hear the argument that homosexuals who live together create a loving, caring family environment, perhaps an environment which is even superior to that which can be provided by a heterosexual couple. In this day of rampant decadence, many homosexuals would misled society into believe that three men, an armadillo and a house plant create a functional family."

President George W. Bush, 28-Sep-2006: "I have gotten to know your State Attorney General, Troy King. He is an accomplished attorney who brings great credit to the office he holds. I can say without a doubt, he's the right candidate to serve as the State Attorney for this great state of Alabama. Troy, thanks for serving."

In January 2008, King was named as chairman of the John McCain's Alabama Leadership Team. "Troy is an outstanding public servant and passionate advocate for the rule of law. Both of these men are dedicated to the principles of limited government and traditional values that we share. I'm proud to have Republican leaders and dedicated public servants like Spencer Bachus and Troy King leading my campaign to victory in Alabama."
