Voters in Georgia should send Rep. Paul Broun to the U.S. Senate because he will only vote in favor of legislation that is based on Christian values, the Republican candidate said Saturday.
During a GOP primary debate in Gainesville hosted by the Hall County Republican Party, Broun outlined why he was the best candidate to replace retiring Republican Sen. Saxby Chambliss.
“I am a proven conservative, consistent constitutionalist,” he said. “There are four C’s that describe who I am and what drives me: Consistent, conservative, constitutionalist, Christian.”
Broun explained that he judged legislation based on four factors. Firstly, he won’t vote for legislation that is unconstitutional.
“The second, does it fit the Judeo-Christian biblical principles our country was founded upon?” he continued.
Broun also promised to vote against legislation that the country didn’t need and couldn’t afford.

He then made a reference to an unspecified "apology" that CNN supposedly made earlier in the week for reporting false information.
Acosta, however, was ready to hit back.
"Mr. President, I think that our record on delivering the truth is a lot better than yours," he replied.
Maddow reports on ‘jury tampering on a mass national scale’ — personally committed by Trump himself
The host of "The Rachel Maddow Show" on MSNBC warned her viewers on Monday that President Donald Trump is personally committing jury tampering with his attacks on Roger Stone jurors.
Maddow recapped viewers on the process that resulted in the current situation, quoting extensively from an op-ed written by one of the jurors.
"And now after that conviction, after roger stone's sentencing, the president of the united states is the person who is leading the charge to denigrate that process, to single out individual jurors -- including by name -- to make them into villains and to try and tear down any respect that any American might have for the legal process if it produced an outcome the president doesn't like," she explained.
