VALDOSTA, GA (WALB) –Gubernatorial candidate Roy Barnes brought his Make Georgia Work Bus Tour to both high schools in Valdosta Friday.

Leading up to election day, he's traveling around the state by school bus to emphasize the importance of education.

He says education is his top priority because improving education will create jobs.

He emphasized the importance of staying in school and getting a post-secondary education.

Barnes also talked about this week's debate with Republican nathan deal here at WALB in Albany.

"Albany has always been my favorite places to debate and I was glad they were able to put it out all throughout south Georgia," said Barnes. "I've been through elections and I know when I'm going to win and when I'm going to lose. This one I'm going to win."

Barnes also stopped at McIntyre Park Middle School in Thomasville late this afternoon.

He'll wrap up his bus tour in Atlanta a week from Saturday.
