Valdosta -Two South Georgia state senate candidates are going head to head to see who's the best man for the job.

Eighth District Senate candidates Tim Golden and Rusty Griffin battled it out in a debate at Lowndes High School Wednesday. They addressed issues of job creation, reapportionment, taxes, and budget cuts.

Griffin says his top priority is education, while Golden thinks we should focus on the rising cost of health care.

"We've got to make sure we give the teachers the resources they need, we stand behind them and we've got to make sure we have dicipline in the classroom," said Griffin.

"I've been working on a mandate bill to try to get small buisnesses the option of choice in their policies that would save 20 to 25 percent on their policy by taking some of the mandates out," said Golden.

Both candidates hope today's debate will help get more young people to the polls for the November election.
