ALBANY, GA (WALB) – A candidate for Lt. Governor flew in to speak with supporters in Albany Friday.  Carol Porter gathered with state and local leaders at the Albany airport Friday morning.

She was also surrounded by laborers who support her stance on making sure Georgians get back to work.  She says the best way to improve the state, is to improve education, but that one of her top priorities is to get rid of corrupt leadership under the Gold Dome.

She said, "We've got to get some new leadership, because there are solutions.  It's so clear that there are solutions if we can just get some new leadership with some backbone that truly cares about the people in Georgia.  People need jobs.  I see them, they're suffering and they need somebody to go up there and take up for them."

Porter does have some competition, Patricia McCracken has qualified to run in the Democratic primary for Lt. Governor, but she's done no campaigning.

Porter is highly favored to win the nomination.  If she does, she'll face Republican incumbent Casey Cagle in November.
