COLUMBUS, Ga. – Duke says the district is “withering” under the leadership of Bishop.
He says the region has lost jobs after big companies Merk Chemical and Cooper Tire left the area.
Duke says he plans to fight to not only keep jobs but create more jobs.
He also says he wants to put a VA Hospital in a centrally located area in the 2nd district.
He explains why he’s the best person for the job.
Congressional Candidate Greg Duke says, “Here’s what’s funny about my opposition. I’m the only one in the 2nd Congressional District that can vote for themselves. My other two candidates live outside the district. This is allowed at the federal level but it just goes to show that – here’s the perfect point – I am the 2nd District.”
Duke says his priorities are God, family, country, and business.
He did run unsuccessfully against Bishop in 2014.
The primary election to decide the Republican Candidate is Tuesday, May 24th.
The winner will face incumbent Democrat Sanford Bishop.
