AUGUSTA, GA (WFXG) - Paine College hosted Congressman Tim Ryan on Monday, Aug. 26.

Among many topics, the Ohio representative talked guns, taxes, police and community relations and the education system. He had a crowd of mixed ages who asked tough questions, and was met with a standing ovation after his closing statement.

“You build it out. You get a message that connects, like ours is. You start building endorsements from the grassroots up, which we are. It takes a little more time, but it’s a little more stable, and it’s solid, and it’s something we can run on," said Congressman Ryan.

Congressman Ryan says his campaign will be announcing major endorsements later this week.
