Brooklyn District Attorney Charles Hynes isn't throwing in the towel.

Just weeks after losing the Democratic primary to Ken Thompson, the 78-year-old prosecutor will be running as a Republican in the general election.

A spokesman for Hynes, who is vying for his seventh term, said the district attorney would elaborate more on his plans next week.

Thompson, a former federal prosecutor, beat Hynes by a 55% to 44% margin in the Democratic primary. Following his defeat, Hynes told The New York Times he wouldn't run on another party line.
