In six weeks, Georgia Republicans will elect a new state GOP chairman during their convention in Augusta.
On Monday, the four candidates - Alex Johnson, Michael McNeely, John Watson and Mike Welsh - debated numerous topics at the CSRA Republican Women's Club monthly meeting. The event was held at Jones Creek Golf Club.
"As a local, I'd like to welcome my opponents to Columbia County," said Welsh, the only candidate from the 12th district.
In all, more than 100 guests attended the event, while candidates were given a minute to answer pre-selected questions.
