By Wainwright Jeffers - bio | email

ALBANY, GA (WALB) - A state representative who wants to become a U.S. representative gave voters in Albany a chance to get to know him Thursday night.

Republican State Representative Mike Keowen is from Thomasville, he hopes to unseat Second District Congressman Sanford Bishop next November.

The district covers more than 30 southwest Georgia.

Keowen says he got an early start on the campaign so he can build support across the district.

"We feel like we can get it done we're not in the race to get our name on the ballot we're in it to win, we're going to be the grass roots team working all across the district and hopefully we're going to get our people out to vote on the day of the election," said Mike Keown, (R) Congressional Candidate.

Keown has served three terms in the Georgia House of Representatives.

He does not support current plans for health care reform.
