Hodges brings in Impressive Haul

Leading all candidates in Georgia’s race for Attorney General Ken Hodges announced yesterday that he has raised nearly $800,000 and is continuing his strong lead in Georgia’s race for Attorney General.

Hodges, the former Dougherty County District Attorney, announced a total of $264,376.00 raised in his official filing for the period between April 1st and June 30, 2010. Ken Hodges has been running on a platform of prosecuting public corruption, fighting crime in our streets and protecting the civil rights' of Georgians by creating a Civil Rights Division.

“I’m humbled by all of the support that I’ve received from Georgians throughout the state,” Hodges said, “and I feel blessed that I’ve had the opportunity to meet everyday Georgians and listen to your concerns. As your next Attorney General, I am ready to represent you and protect your families everyday.”

Joining the nearly 2,000 statewide donors supporting Hodges are DeKalb County’s sheriff and district attorney, Thomas E. Brown and Gwen Keyes Fleming, Decatur County Sheriff Wiley Griffin, Clayton County Sheriff Kem Kimbrough and District Attorney Jay David Miller. In addition, Hodges has been endorsed by more than 70 law enforcement leaders from throughout the state including the International Brotherhood of Police Officers.

Hodges is also supported by Ambassador Andrew Young, former Supreme Court Justice Leah Ward Sears, U.S. Senator Sam Nunn, the Communications Workers of America and a host of business leaders, lawyers and farmers. Hodges boasts a broad coalition of support from Georgians who want an experienced prosecutor as the state’s top law enforcer.

“As this race draws to a close, I continue to be honored by the broad based support we have received and I am proud that the citizens of this state agree that I am the candidate in the race most qualified to prosecute corrupt public officials, protect our civil rights and keep criminals off our streets,” Hodges said.
