Kemp gets out for last-day push

By Jennifer Emert - bio | email

ALBANY, GA (WALB) –  As candidates across southwest Georgia made their last push to get their message to voters, State House candidate Karen Kemp continued her door to door effort.

Supporters stood along Slappey Boulevard with signs reminding voters to cast a ballot for Kemp.

The candidate talked with volunteers at Mike Keown's headquarters. Kemp encouraged voters to be careful with their choices because our area will likely have fewer representatives in Atlanta soon.

"Now more than ever it more important that we have effective representation because we are going to have fewer people representing us in southwest Georgia and I believe my message of fighting crime and working to creating a better environment for creating jobs and retaining them is something I hope will resonate with voters," kemp said.

Kemp planned to get to Baker County today and said she would be working late into the evening encouraging people to vote.

Kemp is running against incumbent Winfred Dukes for the House District 150 seat.
