Hodges Campaigns in Sumter County

Hodges made a Stop in Sumter County on Friday, talking to residents as he prepares for Tuesday's Primary Elections. The reason I am running for Attorney General is the same reason I ran for District Attorney in 1996; I want to make the community a better place — make Georgia a better place,” Hodges said Thursday during a campaign stop at the Russell Thomas Jr. Public Safety building in Americus.

Hodges says that his experience as a prosecutor gives him the advantage over his opponent in the July Primary on Tuesday, having argued in front of the Georgia Court of Appeals and the Georgia Supreme Court.

I have many friends in this area,” Hodges said. “We need representation at all levels.”

Hodges, a Democrat, is heavily endorsed both in Atlanta and locally, even garnering bipartisan support form Sumter County Sheriff Pete Smith who is Republican. Other endorsements from active officials come from Fulton County Solicitor General Carmen Smith, former Lt. Gov. Mark Taylor, former Ambassador Andrew Young as well as District Attorneys and Sheriffs throughout the state. Other local endorsements include Americus Mayor Barry Blount and City Attorney and former State Representative and Majority leader Jimmy Skipper.

Good to see Ken Hodges getting out there to get the votes. I really want him to win. His opponent's entire campaign was based on shameless lies and race baiting because he was seriously outmatched by Ken's experience.

It will come down to Rural Georgia. If Hodges runs it up in Rural Ga Tomorrow Night, it won't matter how well Teilhet does in Metro Atlanta, his home Base.

Plus Hodges Grassroots organization is among the strongest of any democratic cnadidate besides David Poythress.
