BROOKLYN - District Attorney Charles Hynes is officially back in the running to keep his job of nearly 24 years.

The longtime DA says he's getting on the Republican ballot after losing the Democratic nomination in a Primary Day upset against former federal prosecutor Ken Thompson.

Hynes had initially agreed to back off and help Thompson transition into the role, but now says several factors have changed his mind, including tremendous support from Brooklyn constituents.

Both Hynes and Thompson say they feel confident about the General Election on Nov. 5.
