Attorney General fundraising numbers.

Former Dougherty County D.A. Ken Hodges (D-Albany) reported raising $128,200
Cobb County Commissioner Sam Olens (R-Marietta) reported raising $185,954
State Rep. Rob Teilhet (D-Smyrna) reported raising $203,564.
The majority of Olens cash came from metro Atlanta, while Hodges & Teilhet got contributions from across the state. I feel good about the democrats holding on to this seat in 2010. Both Hodges & Teilhet are both great candidates for the position, but in my opinion Hodges is more qualified for the position bases on his track record & qualifications. But Teilhet holds the advanatge now because he is from the metro area where the primary will most likely be determined & the ability to raise cash.
Hodges will focus his campaign on the rural areas of the state. He is a south ga native (Albany) where he expects to run strongest against Teilhet.
