AUGUSTA, GA -- Republicans and Democrats aren't the only ones with an influence on who will get to the White House. So far this political season, independents are playing a big role.
The independent vote can sometimes push a candidate over the edge in a primary. Experts attribute John McCain's recent success to those types of voters.
That's the focus of a meeting held this morning at the Marriott Hotel in Augusta: the State of the Independent Voter in the South Summit.
They talked about the power of the vote and the impact the media has on voters.
News 12's own Richard Rogers was part of the panel.
