Congressman Phil Gingrey, a candidate for the U.S. Senate Republican nomination in next week’s primary, met with Newnan and Coweta County residents for lunch Tuesday at Sprayberry’s Barbecue on Bullsboro Drive.

Gingrey is running for U.S. Senate with a platform of repealing and replacing the Affordable Care Act commonly known as Obamacare, cutting taxes and regulations to assist in creating jobs, defending the Second Amendment, securing the borders and protecting the sanctity of life.

Gingrey is on the Republican Primary ballot with candidates Paul Broun, Art Gardner, Derrick E. Grayson, Karen Handel, Jack Kingston and David Perdue. They are seeking the seat being vacated by U.S. Senator Saxby Chambliss.
