He has also served on various committees at the state level as well.
Saturday, he told the crowds why he should be Georgia's next governor.
" I'm going to be focusing this election on education issues. As governor, we're going to fully fund education. We're going to find a way to do it. Education is the basis of everything else, said Carl Camon.
