Early voting ends Friday for GA runoff

State Senator Earl "Buddy" Carter of Pooler and Physician Bob Johnson of Chatham County want to replace U.S. Representative Jack Kingston, who has his own Republican runoff.

On Friday, Johnson held a press conference on the effects of Obamacare in Georgia's 1st Congressional District. Both candidates spoke to WTOC in opposition to the Affordable Care Act.

"I think more than anyone. I know how health care financing and health care delivery works. Obamacare is a disaster. It takes away any market discipline from government and puts the government in charge," Johnson said.

"Obamacare needs to be turned into a 3D movie. It needs to be delayed, defunded and defeated. It needs to be repelled and replaced with something that is more market based and market driven," Carter said.

Whoever Republican voters decide to send to the General Election will face the winner of the Democratic runoff between Amy Tavio and Brian Reese.
