VALDOSTA, GA (WALB) -

One of the candidates hoping to win Georgia Senator Saxby Chambliss's U.S. Senate seat was in Valdosta Friday.
 
Karen Handel held a meet and greet breakfast at the Courtyard Marriott hotel. Handel says she's looking forward to working on maintaining Georgia's military bases, including Moody Air Force Base.
 
"Making sure that we protect our military bases, Moody and the whole military footprint we have here in Georgia," said Handel. "This is an important part of the state; Valdosta is very important, not just for South Georgia. Of course, we have Moody here, but it's important for our state."
 
Saxby Chambliss has been a Senator since 2003.
