"We're a team, we've always been a team. I try to do everything I can to meet people, get out there and campaign all across the state, it's exciting and it's very encouraging."

The first lady planned to campaign all day with the Governor.

The latest poll from political marketing firm Strategic Visions shows Perdue with 52%, Taylor with 36%, Libertarian candidate Garrett Hayes with 5%, and 7% of the respondents were undecided.
