ALBANY, GA (WALB) - Former Georgia Director of Rural Development Shirley Sherrod headlined Sanford Bishop's Friday night campaign event.

She was forced out of the job at the U.S. Department of Agriculture after false claims of racial discrimination. She turned down an offer from the Ag Secretary to rejoin the department.

Sherrod has several speaking engagements lined up across the country as she searches for another job.

"Agriculture has been a part of my life before 1965 and I'm fairly certain I will do something in agriculture," said Sherrod.

Sherrod says she's a big supporter of Congressman Bishop because of his strong support of agriculture in Georgia.
