Kingston makes final push for votes heading into primary runoffs

MACON, Georgia (41NBC/WMGT) – Primary elections are a week away, and U.S. Senate candidate Jack Kingston stopped in Macon Tuesday for one final push for Middle Georgians’ votes. 

Kingston highlighted his six point plan as his strongest asset heading into primary runoffs. 

On the plan, he says strengthening the country’s national defense is his biggest priority, after conserving energy, and decreasing the wealth gap in the country. 

"We want to make sure everybody has the opportunity to grow and excel. We want to have a lot of jobs available for everyone. That’s why I think a part of this is less regulation that are stifling jobs and opportunities and people’s ability to create wealth," Kingston said. 

He’s up against business David Perdue in the primary runoffs slated for Tuesday, June 22nd.
