Moultrie- Dozens of leaders from across the state met in Moultrie for the 1st District Republican party quarterly meeting. It was not only a chance for colleagues to get together, but the meeting also gave Republican U.S. Senate hopefuls a chance to campaign amongst their own and vie for votes of South Georgians.
"I want South Georgians in particular to know that we must involve neighborhood leaders, community leaders, and faith leaders in the public policy process of America, and I want to start with the farming community. We're way behind in involving the farming community and having them get the kind of benefits they need to keep the family farm alive," says businessman Al Bartell.
Other candidates also say they recognize the importance of agriculture, but say Georgians should also focus on other issues.
"We've got to work every single year to see to it that we have good farm policy and that the water rights are protected and access to water is good with the tri-state water compact going on, but also at this time in our country all of us have to rally behind our president the war on terror and see to it that we support our men and women in harm's way," says U.S. Representative Johnny Isakson.
Though Senator Saxby Chambliss admits he's disappointed to see Democrat Zell Miller leave the senate, he say's he's glad four of his party-mates have a chance at Miller's seat.
"I'm excited about the opportunity to have another Republican. For the first time in the history of our great state we'll have two Republicans, I hope, representing the state of Georgia. I have four good friends running," says Senator Saxby Chambliss.
Republican candidates Herman Cain and Mac Collins were also invited to the meeting, but were unable to make it because of prior engagements.
