ALBANY, GA (WALB) – Candidates are in the home stretch as they make their plea to voters before Tuesday's Election.

Ken Hodges is one of the candidates vying to be on the ballot for Attorney General this November.

He is crisscrossing the state leading up to next week's primary. Hodges says he is a prosecutor not a politician.

He grew up in Albany and was Dougherty Count District Attorney for twelve years, and says he will make a difference for Georgia if elected.

"I've prosecuted a judge, a sheriff, an assistant chief of police, and more than a dozen officers who all though they were above the law. I will not stand for corruption, I will make sure child molesters don't walk through the door and I will make sure public safety is my number one priority," said Ken Hodges, (D) Attorney General Candidate.

Hodges will face Representative Rob Teilhet in the Democratic Primary.

Hodges' supporters recently called on his opponent to take down attack AD's claiming he's made a series of mistakes in a high-profile case.

Hodges said his opponents claims are false.
