State attorneys general are elected independently of the governor. But the
governor, or some other state agency, is generally their client. Some
attorneys general understand that they have clients, and that the client
agency makes the policy judgments; some do not. If the AG is representing
the Office of the Governor, one would hope the two offices had discussed the
case, even if their principals are from different parties.
