ALBANY, GA (WALB) - One of the five Democrats running for the U.S. Senate in Georgia made a stop in Albany Monday.

Vernon Jones flew into Southwest Georgia Regional Airport just after lunch. Jones said if he's elected, he'll work to balance the budget and offer better support to troops when they come home from war.

He also said there should be a partnership between the faith-based community and the government and that he's better for the job than Senator Saxby Chambliss.

"He's been out of touch with mainstream Georgians, farmers and families and small businesses. He can take a bus home, or he can take a plane, whichever one he pays less for gas, doesn't matter, but we going to send him back to Moultrie, Georgia come the fall," says Jones.

Jones, Jim Martin, Dale Cardwell, Josh Lanier, and Rand Knight are all seeking the Democratic nomination to oppose Saxby Chambliss in November.
