Poythress Pledges Not To Get Paid Until Unemployment Drops

In Tuesday's Democratic gubernatorial debate, David Poythress announced that he would refuse his salary as governor until Georgia's unemployment rate dropped below 7%.

"I'm willing to the walk the walk with folks, and I will share in the sacrifice until we get people back to work, period," Poythress said.

The Poythress campaign called his announcement the "memorable moment" in the debate.
