Attorneys in the United States, Person
Who is Royal Alexander?
Richard Royal Alexander is an attorney from Shreveport, Louisiana. In 2007, he was the Republican-endorsed candidate for Louisiana Attorney General. A first-time candidate for public office, Alexander finished second to James D. "Buddy" Caldwell, a Democrat, in the nonpartisan blanket primary. Alexander outpolled incumbent Democrat Charles Foti of New Orleans for the right to enter the general election against Caldwell, a five-term district attorney from Tallulah in northeast Louisiana.
Caldwell received 477,574 votes, Alexander 395,645 votes and Foti finished with 389,658. With only four weeks between the primary and the general election, the traditional Democratic political machine of Louisiana of sheriffs and district attorneys flocked to fellow Democrat Caldwell. Alexander was defeated in the second round of balloting when Foti's base supported Caldwell. In 2011, Caldwell switched his affiliation to the Republican Party.
