Warner Robins High school students got to skype in class today with a U.S. Senator. They spoke with Senator Johnny Isakson who was in the nations capital.

Sixty-seven AP U.S. Government students picked the senator's brain, and they weren't afraid of hard-hitting questions. They asked him about everything from the attack on the U.S. embassy in Libya to a bill calling for fair pay for women.

Teacher Lou Leskosky said the senator's staff complimented the students. "His staff told us afterwards that they were on level or better in some cases than college campus question that they get."

Holden Wright-Caudill, 17, plans to have a career in political science. He wanted to know if the senator has any friends in the Democratic party. "When you see on national media all this hate going around between these two parties, it's kind of disheartening looking at this," he said.

Isakson told Wright-Caudill that he does have friends across the aisle and that success in life is predicated on relationships.
