BAINBRIDGE, GA (WALB) -

By LeiLani Golden - bio | email

BAINBRIDGE, GA (WALB) –Democratic politicians gathered for a meet and greet in Bainbridge Thursday.

Candidates for Governor, state school superintendent and secretary of state met at Bainbridge College's Kirbo Regional Center.

They spoke to voters and then each gave a speech about why they are the best for their respective positions.

Organizers say it's rare that state candidates visit southern, rural towns.

"If we could get them to come this far south and let them see our beautiful city, then they would come back. Do a little fishing, a little hunting, and just visit us," says the chair of the Decatur County Democratic Party, Kelvin Bouie. 

"And that way, when we ask for funds for the city and everything they'll say yeah, we've been to Bainbridge and Decatur County and we're going to give them a helping hand."

Many of the candidates at the Decatur County meet and greet also visited Thomasville and Valdosta today to mingle with voters.
