LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) - Republican David Sterling says he's running for attorney general next year.

Sterling has a private law practice in North Little Rock. He says he's a conservative Republican who will work to protect Arkansas from "an overreaching federal government."

In announcing his campaign Tuesday, Sterling said he'd also work to defend Arkansas' law that restricts most abortions after 12 weeks of pregnancy and defend the state's constitutional ban on gay marriage.

Sterling practices business, commercial and contract law. He's also served as assistant city manager in Hope.

Sterling holds a law degree and master's degree in public administration from the University of Arkansas at Little Rock.

Attorney General Dustin McDaniel, a Democrat, is barred by term limits from running for re-election.
