ALBANY, GA (WALB) - A Georgia U.S. Senate candidate says he's campaigning for change. Jim Martin made a stop in Albany Saturday. He encouraged supporters to head to the polls in November to reverse past economic policies put in place.
Martin said that if he wins Georgia's senatorial seat, he will make sure the concerns of the middle are class addressed.
"We need to make sure that the final decision includes efforts made to protect middle class Georgians and working people. And that is part of the equation to make sure people have good jobs and that their home equity is protected," said Martin.
Jim Martin is running against Republican Senator Saxby Chambliss who has served in the U.S. Senate for the past six years.Feedback
