At Kings Grill on Patterson Street, Democrat Ken Hodges met with supporters and addressed voters' concerns.
Hodges, a south Georgia native, was Albany's district attorney for 12 years.
He says he's committed to ensuring public safety and fighting corruption and fraud.
If elected, Hodges says his priority would be to address the state's ongoing water wars with Florida and Alabama.
"We need to expand the capacity of Lake Lanier," said Hodges. "Make sure we raise it up to two feet, which will give us all the water we need for Atlanta and all of Georgia. We don't need to just come up with an Atlanta solution."
Hodges faces Republican Sam Olens and Libertarian Don Smart on the November Ballot.
The General Election is Tuesday, November 2.
