Among the issues she talked about Saturday at the Honey Bowen Building to a group of supporters was the Affordable Care Act, perhaps better known as “Obamacare”. She said both Democrats and Republicans need to work together to fix the many problems, to make the health-care system work and build upon them for the future. She criticized Governor Nathan Deal’s decision not to accept federal funds which would reportedly extend Medicare coverage to more low income people.
As a former CEO of the Points of Light Foundation, Nunn urges more people volunteer for community service. She said more people are needed to solve problems and create common ground to make a difference.
The field of candidates running for the seat crowded. She faces four Democratic opponents. Republican opponents include U S Representatives Jack Kingston of Savannah, Paul Broun of Athens and Phil Gingery of Marietta as well as former Secretary of State Karen Handel and former Dollar General CEO David Perude.
The primary is May 20, with the general election set for September 4.
