LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) - Conner Eldridge says his last week in office as the top prosecutor in western Arkansas is “bittersweet” - but the U.S. attorney wouldn’t say what he plans to do once he steps down from the post Friday.

Eldridge spoke Tuesday to members of the Rotary Club in Little Rock. He touted achievements he’s made in 4½ years as U.S. attorney for the Western District of Arkansas, including a new initiative aimed at helping children exposed to violence and crime.

Eldridge announced last week that he’ll resign as U.S. attorney, fueling speculation that he’ll seek the Democratic nomination to challenge Republican U.S. Sen. John Boozman next year. Eldridge declined to comment Tuesday on his future, saying he wants to remain focused on his current job until he steps down.
