Democratic rally in Albany

November 4, 2002

Albany -- In the final day of campaigning Georgia Democrats fly around the stater to drum up votes. The Democratic candidates for the U.S. Senate and Statewide offices held a lunch-time rally at Albany's airport.

Lt. Governor Candidate Mark Taylor led the Georgia Democratic Party into his hometown. Hundreds of Democrat supporters welcomed the touring candidates. Secretary of State Cathy Cox of Bainbridge, Candidate for State School Superintendent Barbara Christmas, Insurance Commissioner Candidate Lois Cohen, Commissioner of Agriculture Tommy Irvin, Attorney General Thurbert Baker, Governor Roy Barnes, and Senator Max Cleland, all flying together.

 Senator Zell Miller is not up for re-election, but you would think so. Miller said "I think this is one of the strongest party of Georgia Democrats I have ever seen."

Even with the strong show of support, Governor Barnes says he is apprehensive about Tuesday's election. "I am never confident. I alway am worried, and keep working to the last minute."

Senator Cleland said "Teams win championships, and I think this is a championship team for Georgia."

The Democrats all said getting their supporters out to vote election day was the key to their success. The Democratic Party tour also made stops at airports in Columbus, Savannah, Macon, and Atlanta Monday.
