Carter stumps on Deals home turf
Candidate visits Gainesville square, pushes plan for small businesses
Jason Carter meets constituents in downtown Gainesville as the candidate for governor makes a brief campaign stop.
Local business owners, students, lawyers and other supporters greeted Democratic candidate for governor Jason Carter on Tuesday, one week ahead of Election Day, in the downtown Gainesville square.
