ALBANY, GA (WALB) - Eight days after the election, Georgia's results still aren't certified by the Secretary of State.

But even though a U.S. Senate runoff isn't official, the candidates are campaigning at full speed.

Senator Saxby Chambliss welcomed representatives from the National Republican Senatorial Committee to Georgia Thursday.

Friday, he'll host a rally with Republican Presidential nominee John McCain and Sunday, former presidential candidate Mike Huckabee will headline a rally for Chambliss. The republicans say they're in for a fight and are focusing on fundraising to meet what Democrat Jim Martin plans to spend on his campaign.

"The Democrats are going to try and buy this race," Chambliss said. "They've put a lot of people on the ground, they're going to be spending millions and millions of dollars on the airwaves to discredit me and I give Georgians a lot more credit than the National Democratic Party does."

The Chambliss campaign is also working to bring Alaska Governor Sarah Palin to Georgia. Yesterday Jim Martin announced aides to Barack Obama had arrived in Georgia to assist with his campaign. Republicans say Washington is watching the race closely to see how it may affect the balance in the Senate.
