ALBANY, GA (WALB) - U.S. Senator Johnny Isakson wants to know what's on South Georgians' minds.

He spent part of the morning with the Golden Kiwanis Club in Albany.

Most of the club members are senior citizens, and were not shy asking the Senator tough questions.

They wanted answers on high gas prices and the energy crisis, illegal immigration, the Presidential campaign, and Iraq. Isakson spent three days in Afghanistan earlier this month, and said a possible victory is in sight.

Isakson said "We are about to see what we hoped we could. That is an Al-Qaeda that is defeated and on the run, and incapable of launching the kind of attacks they once were capable of launching."

While in Albany, Senator Isakson also addressed the local bar association luncheon, and then met with a group in Calhoun County.
