In just over a year, Georgia voters head to the polls to select a United States senator to replace Saxby Chambliss, who isn't seeking re-election.
Several Democrats and Republicans have announced their candidacies for the position. Including Dr. Branko Radulovacki, an Atlanta psychiatrist who is seeking his first elected office.
He's known as "Dr. Rad," and he stopped by the 13WMAZ studio to talk about his campaign and to embrace the Affordable Care Act.
Radulovacki said, "I do support it because I believe that despite some of the problems that we're having with its implementation, that ultimately it's going to be very successful because I think it offers so much to so many individuals, and what we do know is that our current health care system has been a failure. So we do need change, and this is a step toward that."
Dr. Rad believes his medical training would help in Washington.
"I'm a physician. I'm a psychiatrist, so I'm trained to look at problems objectively. I'm not trained to look at people as labels. In my work and practice, I treat conservatives, Tea Partyers, Libertarians, Progressives, and Liberals, and so when we talk about things, we really focus on the problem, and when we're able to focus on problems then the solutions become very apparent. So I plan to bring that kind of skill and training to Washington," said Radulovacki.
