Albany-- Lt. Governor candidate Ralph Reed says a lower, more fair state tax will bring more business and jobs to Georgia.

A former chairman of the Georgia Republican Party and the Christian Coalition, Reed says Florida, Tennessee, South Carolina, and Alabama are attracting more new industry than Georgia, and it's because of lower taxes.

"If we cut taxes across the board for everyone, especially income and property taxes, that is going to cause thousands of businesses to come to Georgia, and hundreds of thousands of jobs to be created," said Reed.

Reed says his campaign for Lt. Governor is strong. He said he has 3,000 volunteers in 104 counties in Georgia, and reports raising more money than all the other announced candidates combined. Casey Cagle is also seeking the Republican nomination.

Three Democrats have announced their candidacies, Greg Hecht, Jim Martin, and Mike Thurman.
