U.S. Sen. Johnny Isakson visits Columbus ahead of election

COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) - Senator Johnny Isakson is making a stop in Columbus and he's touring Georgia with his "Get Out the Vote" effort that started Friday.

Isakson stopped at the Columbus Airport Monday morning to rally Georgia voters supporting his candidacy for U.S. Senate.

Isakson is the incumbent, serving for the past 12 years.  He is running against Democrat Jim Barksdale and Libertarian Candidate Allen Buckley.

"You heard in my remarks mention, Columbus is the business center of Southwest Georgia and our state.  It's the home of Prat and Whitney, It's the home of Aflac, it's the home of TSYS, It's the home of Synovus, It's the home of NCR.  It's a great city. Columbus and Muscogee County always play a big role in Georgia and we want to get every vote we can in every corner of the state," said Isakson.

'Isakson Day' is far from finished, he will be heading to Macon, Albany and his final stop at the Cobb County Republican Party headquarters in Marietta, Georgia
