ALBANY, GA (WALB) –  160 people played golf with Congressman Sanford Bishop to support his re-election campaign.

The 13th annual Sanford Bishop Golf Classic teed off Monday morning at Stonebridge Golf Club.

Congressman Bishop said there's a backlash against incumbents this year, and he knows many people did not support his vote for the health care law, but he felt the health reform plan was best for people in the second congressional district.    

"We've been struggling with some of the worst health outcomes anyplace in the country here.  We've got high blood pressure, we've got diabetes, we've got strokes and heart attacks. We have a lot of underserved individuals and we have a lot of people who have health coverage, but who are having to subsidize those who don't."

Bishop is opposed in the November election by Republican Mike Keown of Coolidge, a Pastor and State Representative.
