Valdosta - Ralph Reed met with supporters on a stop at the Valdosta airport.

He wanted to remind residents that he knows there is a Georgia outside of the metro-Atlanta area, and that he will not forget that if he wins Tuesday's primary and the November election.

"When it comes to making sure South Georgia has an education system, a health care system that's second to none and making sure there are job opportunities and opportunities to grow businesses in this part of the state. It's something I care deeply about and I'm going to be a friend to South Georgia," Reed said.

Valdosta was among the stops on his fly-in around the state today.  Reed's trip will end tonight on his home turf in Gwinnett County.
