Two Georgia Republicans running for a chance to defeat Democratic U.S. Rep. John Barrow have agreed to participate in four primary debates. Debates will be held in Augusta, Statesboro, Dublin and Douglas.
Republican candidates hoping to take advantage of a newly redrawn 12th Congressional District debated in Vidalia Monday night. Rick Allen, Lee Anderson, Wright McLeod and Maria Sheffield each said that he or she was the best conservative to take on the well-financed incumbent Democrat John Barrow. The four agreed on most issues. Two sparred.
