Georgia's support for Trump

The founder of a Facebook page, set up to build support for Donald Trump in Georgia, says she is unmoved by criticism the last three days, and charges that Trump is sexist.

"We don't want spin, we want somebody to come out there and pour his heart out and do what Mr. Trump is doing," Julia Heidbrink says.

Heidbrink, a onetime Tea Party leader in central Georgia, says she supports Trump because he is not a politician.

"If Donald Trump got in trouble because Megyn Kelly asked him a dumb question at the debate, and he just answered it, kind of in his own way, he just answered it," Heidbrink says. "And that should not mean that all of a sudden, he's growing horns and got a forked tail."

But there's no denying, in Georgia at least, Trump is behind in organizing his supporters, even though he leads in the polls.

Ted Cruz has an impressive list of state GOP lawmakers already in his corner. Scott Walker's Georgia campaign is chaired by a local US Congressman. And Jeb Bush has reportedly raised more than $300,000 in the state.

Trump has an eager woman in Barnesville and her 400 Facebook likes.

"All I need is for people to say, 'yea, I'm ready.' And we will start meeting," Heidbrink says.
