Atlanta, Georgia (AP) --
The two major party candidates for Georgia lieutenant governor are rolling out their first statewide television ads of the campaign season.
In an ad set to hit the airwaves Monday, October 11, incumbent Republican Lt. Gov. Casey Cagle stresses the importance of education for the state's future.
Democratic challenger Carol Porter on Sunday, Oct. 10, launched her first television spot. It introduces Porter as a Georgia native, a mother
of four Eagle Scouts, a Sunday school teacher and general manager
of nine Georgia newspapers.
Neither ad mentions the candidate's opponents.
Cagle and Porter face off against Libertarian candidate Dan
Barber in the Nov. 2 general election.
