Nebraska's Jon Bruning is nearing the end of his first year on the job as the nation's youngest attorney general.

And Bruning, who probably could still pass for a college student, is finding his sea legs as the state's top lawyer.

Bruning, who turned 34 in April, said being attorney general is, "a huge honor and a huge responsibility." Bruning has made his share of news his first year of office.

He just finished prosecuting State Treasurer Lorelee Byrd, who was sentenced last week to 300 hours of community service after pleading guilty to official misconduct.

As Bruning readies for the second year in a four-year term, he can't help but glance at the horizon.

He says he thinks about running for governor and the U.S. Senate some day.

But he said, "The only way Nebraskans will ever consider promoting me is if I do this job well."
