ALBANY, GA (WALB) - A Republican candidate for Governor says the economy is the number one issue on people's minds.  

State Senator Eric Johnson of Savannah is touring South Georgia, talking to people about the Governor's race.   Johnson has served in the General Assembly for 17 years.

He says he wants to lead Georgia out of the recession by changing to fit business in the 21st century.   

"Refocusing from the big mega-corporations to small business entrepreneurs. I think the 21st century economy is going to be much more fast moving and changing," he said.

Johnson said school choice and ethics are other main issues that he will stress in his race for Governor over the next year.
