JACKSON, Miss. (WCBI) – Attorney General Jim Hood making it known today, November 15, he’s talking to donors about a possible run for the Governor’s mansion.
While talking with reporters in Jackson today, Hood says the Republican majority at the State Capitol isn’t solving big issues facing the state.
Hood specifically talked about health care, job creation, a stagnant economy and education.
The three term Chickasaw County native is the only Democrat elected to state-wide office.
He says wrong decisions in the legislature make he want to run but there’s a catch.
“Puts me in a position where I’m looking at something I’ve never envisioned of doing of running for governor. I am exploring that idea, I am raising money to get in a position where uh we can do that, if that’s what my wife decides we need to do,” says Hood.
Hood expects a decision to be made within the next year.
Governor Phil Bryant cannot run for re-election.
