VALDOSTA, GA (WALB) –Both gubernatorial candidates are focusing on education Wednesday in south Georgia.

Republican Nathan Deal talked with teachers at Lowndes High School.

He says strong schools help Georgia attract new business and help businesses grow. He wants more money for charter schools and more spending flexibility so school systems can decide where to spend money. Deal says he's going to continue to run hard in the last few weeks of the campaign.

"We're going to win we got a lot of support a lot of follks working for us," said Deal. "We're just so pleased to see people taking yard signs and putting them out and taking bumper stickers putting them on their cars and trucks. That's what it takes is a grassroots efforts."

Polls show Deal is ahead of Democrat Roy Barnes who spoke to teachers in Tifton late Wednesday afternoon.

We'll hear from him at eleven.
