Campaigns head into final stretch with the Primary Tuesday

By Jennifer Emert - bio | email

ALBANY, GA (WALB) –  With Georgia's primary less than a week away, campaigns are winding up and while some Congressional candidates have found great fund raising success others have struggled to raise the funds to compete.

Earlier this week Republican Georgia Congressional candidate for District-two Mike Keown announced he raised $368,000 since the beginning of his campaign and $70 more than incumbent Sanford Bishop. Lee Ferrell has struggled to raise funds collecting a little more than $2,300. Ferrell says he's not worried though because he feels he's representing the people.

"I haven't made any promises. The only promise I've made is I'll fight for y'all," said Lee Ferrell, District 2 Congressional Candidate.

Both Lee Ferrell and Mike Keown will participate in one of the final forums leading up to primary election day Tuesday. The forum will be held tomorrow at noon at the Cairo Library.
