NASHVILLE (AP) – Eight candidates have applied with the Tennessee Supreme Court for the next eight-year term as state attorney general.

Tennessee is the only state where the high court appoints the attorney general.

The justices plan to hold public hearings with candidates they deem qualified for the job.

Incumbent Attorney General Bob Cooper, whose term expires at the end of the month, is among those who have applied for the job.

The field of candidates also includes Gov. Bill Haslam's top legal adviser, Herbert Slatery; Republican state Sen. Doug Overbey of Maryville; and courts administrator Bill Young of Brentwood.

Also submitting applications by Friday's deadline were attorneys Eugene Bulso Jr. of Brentwood, Mark Fulks of Johnson City, William Helou of Nashville and Andrew Tillman of Huntsville.
