GOP Host Fish Fry to Energize Conservative Base

The Republican National Convention starts August 27th, but Saturday in Perry some heavy GOP hitters came together for their annual Grand Ol' Fish Fry.

Formerly known as Sonny's Fish Fry, the gathering is meant to generate buzz about the upcoming convention and hear the concerns of the public.

Some pretty big names showed up to the fish fry, like Senator Johnny Isakson and Congressman Austin Scott.

Both said attending the event is incredibly important.

"Well for me, as a member of congress it gives you the opportunity to come in and listen to people, find out what's on their mind," says Scott. "When I came in people were expressing their discontent with some of the things that passed this week in Washington and that's one of the things that makes America great."
