U.S. Senate Candidate Michelle Nunn makes a visit to the area

AUGUSTA, GA (WFXG) - U.S. Senate Candidate, Michelle Nunn made a visit to the area. We joined Nunn at the Jessye Norman School of Arts.

Although, we are at the tail end of this election campaign, there is still time to clear some things up before heading to the voting booths and today Nunn did just that.

"Everywhere that I've gone across the city of Augusta today. People have said that part of what makes Augusta work is the capacity for people to work together," said Nunn.

The importance of partnership, working together and collaboration is something michelle nunn considers to be georgia values, and bringing those values to Washington is something she plans to do.

"I hope to be able to lift those values up and to break through the gridlock and the things that are preventing us from actually getting important work done that matters to the people of Georgia," said Nunn.

The Democrat has many things on her list to get done, but some issues like wages and education are top of her list.

"Passing minimum wage legislations that will lift wages for folks so they can be self-sufficient as families. To issues like pay equity for women, passing pay equity legislation. To investing in education programs like the ones we see here today, early childhood education, pathways to college that are affordable for the next generations of georgians. So there's a whole host of things we can do," said Nunn.

With your votes, Michelle Nunn says she's the one who can make that happen.

"If people believe that that's something that we need to do in Washington. I'm the only candidate that has committed to working together, reaching across the aisle to actually solve problems to recognizing that there can be good ideas on both sides and I hope that is what people remember when they go inside the voting booths," said Nunn.

Michelle Nunn squares off with Republican David Perdue. While Nunn was here in Augusta, Perdue spoke today at a woman's club in Covington. Here's a look at what he is up to for the next couple of days.
