GOP "Jobs Bus" makes a stop in Thomasville

THOMASVILLE, GA (WALB) –The GOP "Jobs Bus" also made a stop in Thomasville Tuesday.

Organizers say it's not often smaller towns like Thomasville get the chance to meet with candidates for state office.

And candidates say they learn a lot about their constituents by visiting those small towns.

"We're going to small towns around Georgia because some of them are economically depressed, even more so than Atlanta," explains Tim Echols, a nominee for the Public Service Commission. "So we want to make sure we're listening and have jobs for their area."

The Real Jobs for Georgia Bus Tour wraps up Thursday after 24 stops throughout the state.
