How does one become an attorney general?

The attorney general is popularly elected in 43 states, the District of Columbia and the Nothern Mariana Islands. The governor appoints the attorney general in five states (Alaska, Hawaii, New Hampshire, New Jersey and Wyoming) and in the four jurisdictions of American Samoa, Guam, Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands. In Maine, the attorney general is selected by secret ballot of the legislature, and in Tennessee, by the state Supreme Court.
