Valdosta -- On his last day in South Georgia, the Democratic Lieutenant Governor candidate met with patrons of the Gold Plate Country Diner,  to answer questions and let them know what he would work for if elected.    

"That's the give 'em Hecht plan," he said. "Preventative and primary health care, alternative fuels, independent living opportunities for seniors, smaller class sizes, and incentivizing great teachers to go to low performing schools. That's the essential plan to increase opportunities for all Georgians to succeed. And if you give 'em Hecht August 8th, which is this Tuesday, we can do that."  

He is facing Jim Martin in Tuesday's Democratic run-off election. The winner will face Republican Casey Cagle in November.
