12th District Race Heats Up

The race for the 12th District congressional seat is heating up. Yesterday Rep. Max Burns (R-GA Dist 12) was in town. Today his Democratic opponent John Barrow paid a visit to the Coastal Empire.

Barrow was at the Savannah Pharmacy denouncing a tax plan proposed by Burns. He says Burns' tax bill could increase taxes on middle-income families by up to 30 percent.

"Georgians just simply can't afford the 'Max tax' for everything they buy," he said. "When I go to Congress I want to make sure the tax is just simple and fair for anyone in this country."

Election day is November 2. You can watch your vote count on WTOC.
