Albany -- A Republican Candidate for Commissioner of Agriculture  said Georgians need to know more about the office.   Supporters met with Gary Black during a stop in Albany Monday morning on a five city statewide campaign fly-around.

He is opposing Brian Kemp for the Republican nomination for Agriculture Commissioner in the runoff Tuesday.

Black says months of traveling the state campaigning have taught him that most Georgians do not know how important the Ag Commissioner is. Black said " Explain agriculture. Explain this agency. And I've been very humbled by the response we've got. People now understand this is an important task and important vote they are going to take on Tuesday. "

 Black is a cattle producer from Commerce, and former president of the Georgia Agribusiness Council. The Republican winner in Tuesday's runoff will face 40 year incumbent Tommy Irvin.
