VALDOSTA, GA (WALB) –Democrat candidate Ken Hodges says he'll make public safety a top priority if he's elected Attorney General.

The former dougherty district attorney campaigned in Valdosta Wednesday.

He says he has a strong record of prosecuting public officials who thought they were above the law.

Hodges says he has endorsements from more than 125 district attorneys and sheriffs, both democrats and republicans.

He says he'll represent south Georgia well.

"You need somebody from south Georgia in the attorney general's office whose going to be an attorney general for all of Georgia and not just the north Georgia metro area," said Hodges. "My opponent is very metrocentric."

Hodges is facing republican Sam Olens and libertarian Don Smart in Tuesday's election.
