Attorney General Jim Hood, who already is considered the presumptive Democratic nominee for the open gubernatorial post in this year’s election, has drawn a primary opponent. And, the two are quite familiar with each other.
Three times, Mr. Hood’s office has filed charges against Hinds County District Attorney Robert Shuler, each time failing to convince a jury of the latter man’s guilt. Mr. Schuler has faced charges on aggravated stalking (hung jury), robbery (not guilty), and obstruction of justice (not guilty). Now the two are going to battle each other for their party’s gubernatorial nomination, which should make this primary campaign very colorful to say the least.
