In the race for the Republican nomination in the Georgia Senate District 13 race, two South Georgia businessmen bring different backgrounds to the election.

Tifton attorney Joseph Carter and Cordele businessman Carden Summers have both earned their stripes in local government -- Carter as a member of the Tift County school board and Summers on the Crisp County commission. Both are small business owners and both have voiced similar ideas about how they would serve our region.

During Carter's term as a local school board member, he has helped the board achieve good fiscal health in a time when many boards have struggled. He has been active within the Republican party and has made many contacts statewide. He has been able to clearly state his vision and his views on education, the economy, agriculture and the role government plays in the lives of South Georgians.

During public forums and speeches to local groups, Carter and Summers have been forthright in their views and have many of the same views on how to handle issues facing our area. We feel Carter's leadership ability and his public service and professional background would serve us well in Atlanta and feel he is worthy of the Republican nomination.
