ALBANY, GA (WALB) –Gubernatorial candidate Nathan Deal and other Republican candidates flew around the state hoping to build last minute support.

They drew a big crowd at the Tifton airport. Today dozens of folks turned up in Tifton to show their support for a host of republican candidates. "I know a real deal when I see one and I think we found him in Nathan Deal," said Mary Reynolds Threatte.

Supporters like Mary Reynolds Threatte, who sang God Bless America to the crowd. "That's why I came here to add my song of God bless America," she said.

And it's supporters like Threatte, who make a difference at the polls. Gubernatorial candidate Nathan Deal says the crowd in Tifton was the largest one he's seen during the fly-around yet.

"If you have people who can work in those office cooperatively with the Governor and the Lt. Governor and with the members of the general assembly we are going to be the ones that rebound first out of this down turned economy," said Deal.

Today Sonny Perdue, U.S. Senators Saxby Chambliss, and Johnny Isakson along with a rest of the republican candidates flew around the state, in one last effort to muster up support before election day. "I believe we can do more with what we have in terms of revenue, I believe we ought to cut taxes as a way of growing our economy and a way of creating more jobs," said Deal.

The candidates stressed how together they can put more Georgians back to work. "Americans want to go back to work and I'm looking forward to going to Congress and putting them back to work," said Austin Scott.

Deal says the distinction between him and his opponent Roy Barnes should be clear to voters. "The idea is if you want your taxes lowered, then I'm the one but if you want to increase them and have state increased spending then that's your choice," said Deal.

And Isakson, who is up for re-election says he will work to protect the future of our children. "I'm going back to fight for mine and fight for yours because it is important that America be as free as prosperous and full of hope for our children as it was for us when our parents left us," said U.S. Senator Johnny Isakson.

All candidates encourage voters to get up, get out and vote tomorrow.

You need to make sure you have identification with you tomorrow before you head to the polls.
