ALBANY, GA (WALB) – Former Dougherty D.A. Ken Hodges campaigned in his hometown Thursday, asking people who know him best to help elect him Attorney General.   Hodges says one of his biggest successes as District Attorney was increasing the conviction rate for crimes against women and children from below 50% to nearly 100%.

He says he needs people from his hometown to spread the word about what he accomplished here.   He says his experience as a prosecutor sets him apart from his opponent. 

Hodges said, "We need someone who's going to be top prosecutor for the state of Georgia, having done it before and my opponent has never been a prosecutor, has never stood up in the courtrooms of anywhere standing up on behalf of victims of crime, advocating on their behalf and making sure their interests are heard."    

Hodges is running against republican Sam Olens, former Chairman of the Cobb County Commission and Atlanta Regional Commission.
