Impact of presidential candidates visiting Georgia, South Carolina

Many presidential candidates are making their presence felt in Georgia and South Carolina.

Georgia Secretary of State Brain Kemp said candidates are becoming more strategic as they target the southern states. He said it’s not only giving Georgians and South Carolinians the opportunity to meet with the candidates, but it forces the candidates to do their research about the area.

"When they come to the state, they have to really play there and fight for those votes. They've got to learn about the state, they've got to learn about Georgia’s great military bases and institutions that we have in the state and not only the importance it is to jobs in Georgia, but what that does to a national security perspective,” said Kemp.

The presidential primary for Georgia is March 1st.
