VALDOSTA, GA (WALB) -

By Jade Bulecza - bio | email

VALDOSTA, GA (WALB) –  Democrat District 175 Representative Amy Carter says she's working hard to fully assess the needs of her district.

She says no decision will make everyone happy but she wants to do what will reap the greatest rewards for Valdosta.

District 174 Representative Ellis Black says he may switch to the Republican party. He says his views haven't changed, but he's uncomfortable with the direction of the Democrats.

 "I understand the democrats in Washington just re elected Nancy Pelosi as the minority leader now and it just seems they haven't got the message in the last election," said Black.

Black and Carter tell us they aren't sure when they'll make the decision. Three other democrats switched to the republican party last week.
