Presented by Cox, this event is designed to be an old fashioned political rally with an expectation of at least 250 guests to attend.  The purpose of HobNob is to give Chamber members and others in the community an opportunity to meet with candidates and representatives from their campaigns on a one-to-one basis.  The Chamber has invited all candidates appearing on the 2014 ballots, including both senatorial candidates Perdue and Nunn, who have strong ties to Houston County, as well as both gubernatorial candidates Deal and Carter.
