Metro Atlanta D.A Endorses Ken Hodges for Attorney General

Press Release from the Hodges Campaigh

Gwen Keyes Fleming has announced her endorsement of Ken Hodges (D) to be Georgia’s next Attorney General.

“It takes a real dedication to the law to achieve what Ken Hodges has achieved, inside the courtroom and out. I admire him for it,” Fleming said. “His record of victim’s advocacy and his experience as a prosecutor are what Georgians should expect from an Attorney General. Ken’s got my full support.”

Fleming was sworn into the DeKalb County District Attorney’s Office in 2005. She has also served in the office of the DeKalb County Solicitor-General, to which she won election in 1998.

Fleming’s announcement comes on the heels of the February 24 statement from Thomas E. Brown -- also of DeKalb County -- naming Ken Hodges as “the best pick to be Georgia’s top prosecutor and chief law enforcer.”

“It means the world to me, as a prosecutor, to have the support of a professional like Gwen Fleming,” Hodges said. “There’s a balance between being tough on crime and smart on crime. Gwen gets that. It shows in the work she’s done with teen mentoring workshops, and with pre-trial diversion programs that give first-time offenders a second chance, just like the New Heights program my office established in Albany.”

“I’m thankful for Gwen’s leadership and support,” Hodges said.
