SEATTLE (AP) - Former Washington Attorney General Rob McKenna has joined the Seattle office of a New York law firm specializing in technology and consumer product issues.

McKenna was announced Tuesday as a partner in Orrick, Herrington & Sutcliffe and co-chair of Orrick's public policy group.

After losing the race for governor to Democrat Jay Inslee and leaving office in January, McKenna said he wanted to take a break from public service. He said it was too early to say whether he might run again.
