Republican U.S. Senate Candidate Visits Zanesville

With the March Primary less than four weeks away, candidates are on the road drumming up support from the people they hope to represent.

Eric LaMont Gregory, is one of six republican candidates running for the Republican nomination to challenge Democrat Sherrod Brown for his U.S. Senate seat.

Gregory stopped by the WHIZ studios Friday and addressed several issues including tensions within what some call a "Do-Nothing Congress"

"We have to get along, we have to get together, and I was out there because I believe in my country, and I will put country about party," said Gregory.  "I will put country above any partisan issues because I want to see America prosper."

Gregory is a graduate of the University of Oxford, and is a clinical physiologist by trade. Healthcare is at the top of his list of priorities and said an overhaul is needed to ensure those who suffer from catastrophic illnesses and those without healthcare get treatment they need without costing taxpayers an arm and a leg.

"We can't have people going to the emergency room because they have no health insurance and receive the highest cost care to deliver the least amount of service," added Gregory.  "So we have to make some to those who have no health insurance at all. "

Gregory is a supporter of free enterprise and is working to tackle the problem of human trafficking.
