Last week, Democratic U.S. Representative John Barrow talked to us about the issues in his quest for re-election to Georgia's 12th District congressional seat.
This week Republican opponent, Lee Anderson of Grovetown, talked about the issues he considers important in the race. We interviewed the two men separately because Anderson declined to take part in a debate with Barrow.
Anderson said the most important issues include balancing the federal budget, same sex marriage, abortion, health care, gun rights and Barrow's campaign ads.
Anderson, who's a farmer, calls himself an every day guy who's accessible and can relate to the problems facing people in tough economic times.
Georgia's 12th congressional district covers 19-counties in east Georgia, including Laurens, Wheeler and Treutlen counties. Barrow is seeking his fifth, two-year term in the House of Representatives.
