Democrat Jim Hood has won a fourth term as Mississippi attorney general.
He turned away a challenge on Tuesday from Republican Mike Hurst, a former federal prosecutor.
The 53-year-old Hood is one of the few Democrats still holding statewide elected office in the South.
He is engaged in a legal fight with Google, questioning whether the Internet search engine improperly helps people find pirated music and drugs without a prescription. The California-based company says Hood is infringing on its free-speech rights.
Hurst says Hood has failed to challenge President Barack Obama on immigration and has fallen short in prosecuting public corruption.
