ID=17058527

First Lady Rosalynn Carter was in Macon Friday at New Fellowship Missionary Baptist Church, campaigning for her grandson, State Senator Jason Carter.

The meeting was not open to the press, but Carter spoke to 13WMAZ's Paula Rotondo afterward.

Carter says she's urging people to vote for Jason Carter, the Democratic candidate for governor, and says she wants everyone to turn out for what she calls a very important election.

She says she has every confidence in the world that her grandson will do what's right for the state. Carter gave us a little bit about what was discussed.

Countdown to the Luke Bryan concert


Luke Bryan fans are ready for his Saturday concert at Macon's Central City Park.

On Friday, Jason Thompson rented out space for his RV. "If you're having adult beverages you can kind of stay, you don't have to drive, you don't have to worry about getting a DUI," said Thompson.

And Captain Eric Walker said the Bibb County Sheriff's Office will be watching. "Naturally with any event, whether it be a concert or a festival or anything, sometimes you have folks that have a disagreement with other people and maybe a minor fight or so , and we'll take the appropriate action if we need to with that. But we're not actually just looking to go and lock everybody up for this. We want everybody to come down, have a good time," said Walker.
