Hopkins will be unopposed in the August primary, and will provide voters with an alternative to the controversial Hood.

Tuesday in Tupelo, Hopkins had some harsh words for Hood, according to Northeast Mississippi Daily Journal.

“Our governor (Republican Haley Barbour) is doing a great job,” Hopkins said, according the report. “He needs an attorney general who gives good legal advice to stand by him and back him up. We don’t have that right now.”
