Speaking in Centerville tonight House Republican Minority leader John Boehner extolled the virtues of Robins Air Force Base saying he understands fully the importance of the base to Warner Robins and the state of Georgia as a whole.

He then promised that Austin Scott would have a voice on the powerful house committee that oversees military affairs.

"If you elect Austin Scott to the US House of Representatives it is going to be my commitment to do everything I can to make sure he is the next member of the Armed Services Committee."

Riding a wave of voter dissatisfaction with Washington D.C. and specifically with the Democratic leadership in the House, Boehner pushed for more accountability among elected leaders.

"The American people expect to be listened to by the politicians in Washington and when you look at whats happened over the last 22 months you can boil it down to just a couple of words, they haven't been listening.

And when they're not listening," he continued, "they are disrespecting the views of the American people. That is what's going on and it is exactly why there are millions of Americans saying enough is enough."

Also in attendance was Georgia Senator Cecil Staton, US Senator John Isaacson, and Georgia Representative Willie Talton. Staton and Isaacson both spoke on behalf of the party as a whole and Austin Scott.

After the rally Boehner and Scott were off to Perry for a fundraising event.
