Hodges visits Albany

By Karen Cohilas - bio | email

ALBANY, GA (WALB) – Former Dougherty District Attorney Ken Hodges came back home to kick off his final full day of campaigning for Attorney General.  Hodges is running in the democratic primary.  He started a fly-around in Albany this afternoon.    

He says what sets him apart from his opponent is years of experience as a prosecutor.  Hodges said, "My opponent has not done that one single time.  Where I have put predatory lenders out of business, he has accepted money from predatory lenders in his campaign.  There is a very clear difference.  He has been to lunch with lobbyists more times than he's been in a court room.  We need an Attorney General who will stand up and fight for them, fight public corruption, will make sure that we stand up for the rights of all Georgians and I'm the only one who has the proven record to do that."    

Hodges also planned to visit Augusta, Savannah, Macon, and Atlanta Monday.  He's running against state representative Rob Teilhet for the democratic nomination.
