Augusta, GA — This is a very busy time for our nation when it comes to the political scene.  Both major parties have had their moment in the spotlight.  Now that the conventions are over, the real fun begins as candidates hit the campaign trail to push their platforms.  This week on The Means Report, we welcome Georgia’s 12th District Congressman Rick Allen.  He talks about the recent conventions and gives us his thoughts on the presidential race.  He talks about his business background and how that’s helped him as a lawmaker.  Business experience is a key component of Donald Trump’s platform, and we will hear from Allen on that.
