VIDEO: Final GOP runoff debate gets testy

MILLEDGEVILLE — The 10th GOP Congressional District and the Baldwin County Republican Party co-hosted a run-off debate between Mike Collins and Jody Hice at Georgia Military College's Goldstein Center for the Performing Arts Wednesday. The candidate who wins the Republican nomination July 22 will take on Athens attorney Ken Dious for Paul Broun's vacated Congressional seat. This was the last debate before the primary runoff, and both candidates treated it appropriately. Hice said he's been through countless First Amendment battles that shaped his life. Collins reiterated his trucking business background and said this election was about the economy and jobs. 'There's an opportunity in the 10th District for a new leadership style,' Collins said. Hice jabbed at Collins concerning his true stance on raising the national debt ceiling and voting Speaker of the House John Boenhner out of leadership. Collins swung back saying his opponent speaks the too much like Paul Broun, who vacated the 10th District Seat for an unsuccessful U.S. Senate run. Both men want to do away with 'out of control' government agencies and went as far as to say the Internal Revenue Service should be eradicated. Hice said he won't cave under the Washington, D.C. pressure, and Collins isn't looking to become a career politician.
