ALBANY, GA (WALB) – A Republican candidate for Congress in Georgia says he thinks that the Massachusetts race is a precursor to what will happen in Georgia.
Coolidge native State Representative Mike Keown is running for the District 2 seat against Congressman Sanford Bishop. He says people across the country are sick of having their concerns ignored, and don't want health care reform rushed through.
Congressman Bishop says he's heard their concerns and he's listening.
"I've seen the same sentiment that was expressed in Massachusetts, and that's the fact that a lot of folks today feel like no one is listening to them in Washington," said Keown. "It's time for a change, and the only way to get a change is to change the people that are in Washington."
"I'm always concerned about listening to the people and I think there was some things that have happened with which I have not been happy," said Congressman Sanford Bishop.
Both Keown and Bishop were at the Peanut Farm show at the Albany Civic Center today.Bishop received the Work Horse award from the Peanut commission for his role in promoting the peanut industry.
