VALDOSTA, GA (WALB) -

By Jade Bulecza - bio | email

VALDOSTA, GA (WALB) –A candidate for Georgia Attorney General says he'll aggressively fight the new federal health care law.

Republican Sam Olens campaigned Friday in Valdosta.

He says if elected he'd work to toughen immigration laws, revise sunshine laws, and hold elected officials accountable if they violate their oaths of office.

He says he'll do what's best for Georgia rather than what's best for Washington and will challenge the constitutionality of health care reform.

"We're going to continue fighting until the U.S. Supreme Court rules that law unconstiutional," said Olens. "You don't just take over a sixth of the nation's economy because you want bigger government."

Olens faces Democratic nominee former Dougherty District attorney Ken Hodges in the race for State Attorney General.
