On February 1, five of the eight GOP Senate
candidates were in Gilmer County for a candidate
forum jointly sponsored by the Gilmer GOP and the
Tea Party of Gilmer County. Those candidates
were Congressman Paul Broun, Art Gardner,
Derrick Grayson, Karen Handel, and Eugene Yu.
The event was moderated by former State Senator
Chip Pearson. The more than 200 attendees
heard from each candidate on questions ranging
from NSA snooping to amnesty.
Many thanks go to Barbara Murray, the organizer
on the GOP side, and to Margaret Williamson with
the Gilmer Tea Party, who saw to all the details of
organizing the event.
