Moultrie- The race is neck and neck and polls predictions give both Chambliss and Cleland 49 percent of the votes, and both candidates made their way to South Georgia to draw last minute support.

It started with Cleland at the Albany airport. "People know me, they know my record, and I know Georgia, and that's one of the reasons I'm excited about tomorrow, " says Senator Max Cleland.

But Chambliss is banking on his statewide bus tour to inch Cleland right out of his senate seat; he made his last stop in his hometown Moultrie.

"These are my friends and these are the folks that helped me develop the values that I have developed over the years," says Representative Saxby Chambliss.

Hundreds of Chambliss supporters in Moultrie say Max should get the ax.

"He just wants to do the right thing and you don't meet too many politicians like that," says Chambliss supporter Bess Stembler.

Whatever the outcome, on the night before elections, the Georgia senate race is too close to call.

Chambliss will cast his vote in Moultrie before heading back to Atlanta tomorrow Tuesday morning.
