Today former Special Assistant Attorney General and
retired Major General Al Hopkins launched his first television ad
across the state in his campaign for Mississippi’s Attorney General.
The ad, entitled “Move,” depicts Hopkins roots working on his family
farm, his public service in the military, his career serving the law
for 42 years, and closes with Hopkins’ vow to fight drug crime and
punish public corruption.

“Mississippi is moving forward, but corruption is standing in our
way,” stated Hopkins. “Growing up on a farm where I learned the
value of hard work, serving our country in the military as an
enlisted man and later as Major General and Chief Judge, and
dedicating myself to the law for 42 years–these experiences will
guide me as Attorney General to fight drug crime and punish public
corruption.”
