Congressman Jack Kingston, a candidate for U.S. Senate, visited Sprayberry’s Barbecue on Jackson Street Wednesday to meet with and introduce himself to a number of Newnan and Coweta County residents.

Kingston is running with a platform including restoring the work requirement for welfare, simplifying the tax code, supporting a strong national defense, furthering America’s energy independence, repealing Obamacare, lowering taxes, cutting spending and balancing the budget. He also supports the fair tax, the Savannah Harbor Expansion Project and America’s agriculture.

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