DEKALB COUNTY - A controversial campaign strategy in the race to become Georgia’s next governor is getting heated.
Dozens of protesters surrounded Republican gubernatorial candidate Michael Williams’ campaign bus Wednesday afternoon.
The bus -- dubbed the “Deportation Bus” -- has been met with mixed reaction over the past few days.
It made an appearance Wednesday in Clarkston, where supporters and protesters were waiting.
Williams said the protesters forced him to cancel an event Wednesday in Athens.
