VALDOSTA, GA (WALB) –A Former Dougherty District Attorney who's running for Georgia attorney general campaigned in Valdosta Wednesday.

Democrat Ken Hodges says he'll hold public officials accountable for corruption and will make sure capital punishment appeals are handled promptly and properly. Hodges says he's a prosecutor, not a politician, and that voters should look at the person on the ballot not necessarily the party.

"Ken Hodges, the attorney general is going to enforce the law plain and simple and he's going to hold them accountable for the law as I did when I prosecuted Sheriff Sidney Dorsey from Dekalb County and my own assistant chief of police and sent them to prison," said Hodges.

Hodges' opponent for attorney general is Republican Sam Olens. He's practiced law for three decades and is the Cobb County Commission Chairman.
