Supporters of Ken Hodges gathered on the steps of the courthouse to praise the job he did as district attorney. Hodges promised to work just as hard if he's elected Attorney General. He says he'll rely on people from Albany to help get out his name across the state. Hodges says he doesn't think running as a Democrat in a Republican state will hurt his chances.
"I do think that both the District Attorney's and the Attorney General's office is as non partisan as can be and I've never made a decision based on someone's party or who they affiliate with and I don't plan to do that as Attorney General so I'm reaching out to republicans I want their support and I've got a lot of republican support," said Hodges.
Hodges Tuesday said he's the only candidate who can do the job on day one.
