ALBANY, GA (WALB) - Tifton State Representative Austin Scott says he's a record-setting walker.  The Republican gubernatorial hopeful spent several months walking around the state meeting voters. He says he walked 1,068 miles, 65miles more than former Florida Governor and U.S. Senator Lawton Chiles walked while campaining in 1970. The distance is like walking from Albany almost all the way to Toronto, Canada.
