David Perdue visits Columbus for Fly Around Tour

COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) - A Republican candidate for the U.S. Senate made a stop in Columbus on Monday morning as part of his "Fly Around Tour."

David Perdue spoke in front of dozens this morning at Flightways--located on West Britt David Road.

Perdue is running against Republican Congressman Jack Kingston.

He spoke with News Leader 9 about his priorities for the upcoming runoff.

"It's all about the issues you know debt and the economy and jobs," Perdue said. "People here are worried about what's going to happen down here at Benning, what's going to happen to our economy and we only have to look inside Columbus to see old textile mills that have been boarded up and chanced and converted over the years to see how bad government policies have infected entire industries."

Election Day for the Georgia runoff is Tuesday, July 22. The winner faces Democrat Michelle Nunn in November.

Be sure to tune into News Leader 9 after the polls close tomorrow for complete election results.
