Congressman Phil Gingrey was in Albany Tuesday night looking for support, and campaign donations, for his Senate bid.     

He attended a private reception put on by area doctors at the Veranda. He talked to voters about issues affecting Georgia and the nation and how he plans to solve the problems.     

Gingrey told us the economy and Obamacare are the two issues people want to talk most about on the campaign trail.

"We're about to go over the cliff, so I don't think there is any questions that the economy, debt, the job loss, the fact that this recovery has gone on, and quite honestly I think the healthcare law, the affordable care act which in my humble opinion is the unaffordable act," said Phil Gingrey, Congressman.     

Gingrey was an obstetrician and gynecologist in Marietta before serving in the State Senate. He was elected to Congress in 2002. So far, eight other Republicans are running to replace retiring Senator Saxby Chambliss.
