Congressman Jack Kingston visits Columbus

COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) -

Georgia Congressman Jack Kinsgton made a stop in Columbus on Monday June 30. 

He met with local leaders at the National Infantry Museum to talk about maintaining a strong national defense and fighting for Fort Benning-- which is a huge economic boost for Columbus and the state of Georgia.

It's all part of the Kingston's American Renewal Tour.

"In terms of knowing the military and working on military policy and serving on the defense committee, and making it my number one committee assignment, I am the one who's going to best represent Fort Benning and the surrounding area," Kingston said.

Kingston faces David Perdue in the Republican runoff for U.S. Senate on Tuesday, July 22.
