At the Smoke'n Pig off North Valdosta Road, three Republican nominees held a Q&A to address hot topics.

Hosting the forum was Congressman Jack Kingston, Attorney General Candidate Sam Olens and House District 176 aspirant Jason Shaw.

Among a number of subjects, they discussed immigration, health care and job creation.

If elected, all three candidates say their priority would be to turn Georgia's economy around.

"I've been endorsed by the National Federation of Independent Business," said Jack Kingston (R-Ga.)." I've received a Guardian of Small Business Award. Small businesses create 70-percent of the jobs in America. You need somebody who is pro jobs and pro small business."

"I was born and raised here in the district," said Jason Shaw. "I'm a small business owner here. I'm a farmer. I know how to create jobs and that's the name of the game right now."

"I have a proven track record of fiscal conservatism, reducing taxes, privatizing services," said Sam Olens. "Providing the best possible government for the least possible cost. And I look forward to being the state's Attorney General and continuing those policies."

On the November ballot, Jack Kingston faces Oscar Harris II, Jason Shaw opposes Debra Tann and Sam Olens squares off against Ken Hodges and Don Smart.

The General Election is Tuesday, November 2.
