Albany -- A former Atlanta TV reporter wants a seat in the U.S. Senate, and Dale Cardwell is using his investigative journalism skills in his political campaign.

Cardwell made a stop in Albany Monday afternoon where he announced that he will use the video website YouTube to air investigative reports on Republican Senator Saxby Chambliss.

He said, "People want 3 things from the Federal Government: They want the federal government to leave them alone, stay out of their pockets, and to enforce the law. Our current representative, our senator in Washington, Saxby Chambliss fails on all three counts."

Cardwell, who is vying for the Democratic nomination, made his announcement on the grounds of the Dougherty County Courthouse. He will be following in the footsteps of other politicians who have turned to Internet video campaigning.

"I'm going to send that message via E-mail. They're going to click on their computer and see a television style report. No varnish, nothing but the pure unvarnished truth. And they're going to say,that's what I've been waiting for," he said.

Cardwell launched his new website www.Dalethetruth.com today which will also air the investigative reports.

A link to that site will be e-mailed to thousands of potential supporters across Georgia.

Cardwell has only raised $35,000 dollars for his campaign, Chambliss has millions.

But Cardwell says one poll shows him just 16 points behind the incumbent.
