TUPELO, Miss. (WTVA) - Democratic candidate for governor Jim Hood held a campaign rally at the Tupelo Furniture Market on Thursday evening.

Hood, who is from Chickasaw County, said he needs to win northeast Mississippi to win the election.

“Especially because I'm from here, it's just a blast to come here,” Hood said.

He said he visited downtown Tupelo to see familiar sites.

"It's just great to be here with home folks."

Hood, who is the current attorney general, is seeking to win the state's top job. He's competing with seven other candidates in the Aug. 6 Democratic primary election.
