ALBANY, GA (WALB) - A week from now, we should know who will represent us in the U.S. Senate. One group that supports America's military efforts is working to make sure that man is Saxby Chambliss.

Members of Move America Forward Freedom PAC are traveling the state to support the Republican Incumbent. They say he's the clear choice when it comes to fighting terrorism and supporting veterans.

Jan Johnson is traveling with the group. She's a Gold and Blue Star mom. She lost her son Justin in Iraq in 2004. Her husband and another son are also serving their country. Johnson says she's voting for Chambliss because of his relationship with the troops.

"When they're thousands of miles away from home, they have nothing to fall back on. They've got to have all their supplies and everything they need there and I believe Saxby will be the one that makes that happen," said Johnson.

"Saxby Chambliss is a clear supporter of our troops. He is a supporter of our returning veterans, our wounded warriors," said Jonathan Krive, Move America Forward Director of Operations.  

This group also spent part of the day in Columbus. They'll talk with voters in Savannah on Wednesday.
