MILLEDGEVILLE — Congressman Dr. Phil Gingrey visited the Brown-Stetson-Sanford House Monday, as a stop on the statewide tour meeting with health care professionals, elected officials, and local GOP chapters throughout middle and South Georgia. The Baldwin County Republican Party hosted Georgia's 11th Congressional District representative running to fill Saxby Chambliss's seat in the U.S. Senate. After 11 years in Congress, Gingrey said the option to run for Senate wasn't expected after Chambliss surprisingly decided not to pursue a third term. The 2014 Senate hopeful said the bus tour remains focused on repealing Obamacare and replacing it with health care reform initiatives that lower costs and protect the physician-patient relationship. Gingrey told a small crowd it's time to draw a line in the sand. 'The Republican spine in the Senate needs a little strengthening. We can take it back. I'll be a gang of one if it's necessary,' he said Monday.
