Valdosta, GA - Georgia Democratic Candidate for Senate, Michelle Nunn, made a campaign stop in Valdosta today, as she gears up for the November election.
The stop was part of a campaign across the state. Nunn says she plans to meet with veterans, nonprofit organizations and business leaders about the strength of Georgia's military bases. In Valdosta, Nunn sat down with local leaders about the "Moody Mission", and how it can continue to thrive moving forward.
"There's an extraordinary, really integration, of the communities and these bases. It's hard to imagine Valdosta without Moody, or Moody without Valdosta. These are a real, I think, fabric, of pride and community engagement with our bases here in Georgia, that I think sets us apart", says Nunn.
Nunn also says it's not just about protecting the A-10 and the "Wart hog", but also making plans to see the F-35s at Moody.

Valdosta, GA - Just days after the Primary Runoff Election in Georgia, Democratic U.S. Senate Candidate Michelle Nunn, made a campaign stop in Valdosta today.
Nunn toured the Boys and Girls Club, and discussed the future of children in South Georgia with the Club's Director. She says the focus of her tour is collaboration. The Boys and Girls Club, she says, is a good example of community partnerships. The Club works hand in hand with Second Harvest Food Bank to provide meals to club goers, among other programs.
"You can see what a difference this is making for kids. Not only in their opportunity to be here for the summer, but also their capacity to improve on their grades, and their test scores, We know that when people work together, we can make a difference."
Nunn's stop comes right on the heels of Representative Jack Kingston's visit. He lost the Republican Primary to David Perdue.
