With the general election less than a month away, one congressional race many thought to be locked in for a democrat is now apparently a dead heat.
The republican candidate for the 12th Congressional District, Max Burns of Screven County, is burning up the roads of east Georgia. He spent some time with retired members of the Communication Workers of America at their luncheon meeting in Savannah, and says he has no intention of slowing down.
"It is a very competitive race," he said. "The vice president was in Augusta. We had the speaker of the house here on Sunday in Savannah. Our poll numbers are solid. This is the most competitive race for an open seat in Georgia, and we're delighted with the opportunity."
Burns' opponent is democrat Charles Walker of Augusta.
