ALBANY, GA (WALB) –  The challenger in the Second Congressional District race criss-crossed the district hoping for a victory Tuesday.

Mike Keown started his Monday morning in Columbus, made a stop in Americus before his Victory Bus Tour pulled into Albany around noon. Inside the campaign headquarters volunteers continued to make up signs to pepper the highways in a last ditch effort to get voters to remember Keown's name at the polls. Keown spoke with volunteers telling them he thinks the region is ready for a change.

"I think the Obama Care Bill was kind of what, the straw that broke the camel's back really that when people started saying hey, no one in Washington is listening to us from our local representation on up and we want to make a change and its time for a change," said Keown.

Keown's tour continued through Bainbridge ending in Thomasville. Keown hopes to unseat 9-term incumbent Congressman Sanford Bishop.
