Jack Kingston makes a stop in Valdosta

VALDOSTA, GA (WALB) -

Congressman Jack Kingston is hoping his visit to Valdosta Thursday helped Valdostans get to know him a little better.
 
Kingston held a meet and greet session in downtown Valdosta Thursday morning. He talked to visitors about his six-part plan, which he believes will help Washington work better.   

Kingston emphasized that the military was the top priority in his plan.

"The number one thing on it, and I don't have to tell anybody from this part of the state, is a strong national defense. We've gotta make sure our service men and women are well trained and well equipped," said Kingston.

"I'm confident we can get things turned around up there, but we've got to be serious; we've got to hit the ground runnin'," continued Kingston.

Kingston is one of the candidates hoping to take over outgoing Georgia Senator Saxby Chambliss' U.S. Senate seat.
