TIFTON, GA (WALB) - A week from Tuesday, people will cast their vote for Georgia's next governor. Democratic candidate Roy Barnes made a campaign stop at Tifton's Agrirama.
Among the country music and corn maze, Roy Barnes, continues to show Georgians his heart is deeply rooted in agriculture.
"This area is so dependent on agriculture research and we don't have the funding we need," said Barnes.
he want's to bring in that funding using value-added agriculture which helps farmers prosper as the food industry changes. Improved research and education are at the forefront of his campaign as he meets with supporters at the Peanut Museum.
Gale Buchanan is a former US Department of Agriculture researcher under the Bush Administration.
Unlike Deal, Barnes supports the Farm Bill which provides research, food assistance, support for agricultural marketing and more.
The water crisis is also a concern both Barnes and Deal say they'll address if they're elected.
Barnes will continue on his Make Georgia Work Tour through October 30th. Challenger Nathan Deal and District 2 Congressional candidate Mike Keown will makes stops on a GOP bus tour Tuesday in Albany, Blakely, and Thomasville.
