Our Next Attorney General
A few names are being mentioned for the next AG over at SWAC Girl's blog. We have Ken Cuccinelli announcing yes or no Monday. Paul Harris has his name in the ring. A commenter brings US Attorney John Brownlee into the mix. About Brownlee
John L. Brownlee was appointed United States Attorney by President George W. Bush on October 16, 2001. As U.S. Attorney, Mr. Brownlee is responsible for the prosecution of violations of federal law within the district and with the civil representation of federal agencies.
Prior to his appointment as U.S. Attorney, John was an associate attorney for the Roanoke based law firm Woods, Rogers. He has served as an Assistant United States Attorney in Washington, DC, and law clerk to U.S. District Judge Sam Wilson in Abingdon and Roanoke.

John is married to the former Lee Ann Necessary of Millers Creek, North Carolina. They attend, along with their daughters Thompson Ann and Catherine Harris, Grandin Court Baptist Church in Roanoke.
Brownlee was a speaker at Blogs United in Martinsville. He was impressive and well received. Brownlee has not announced any interest in the position as of yet. Will there be a draft Brownlee movement? The GOP is in great shape for 09!
