ALBANY,  GA (WALB) –  The former Dougherty County District Attorney had breakfast with dozens of young professionals in Albany Friday morning to gain support toward his run for Attorney General.

Ken Hodges met with his supporters at Henry's on Dawson Road to enjoy breakfast and encourage them to help spread his name and abilities throughout the state of Georgia. 

"Not a single one of the other candidates has ever argued a case before the Georgia Supreme Court, either Democrat or Republican," said Hodges. "And my opponent in the Democratic primary has never once tried a jury trial in his life civil or criminal, never been a prosecutor, doesn't know the courtroom."

Hodges says one of the biggest issues he plans to confront head on is the water war. He says the Flint River should not be used to help Atlantans, that there are better options.

Hodges has raised close to half-a-million dollars in the past year, but says he needs a lot more support from all over the state, not just his home town of Albany.
