U.S. Senate candidate Karen Handel hopes her last minute stop in Valdosta Monday afternoon will help her in Tuesday's republican primary election. Handle and her husband flew in to the Valdosta Regional Airport to meet with supporters. Handle says she's confident about her campaign and believes she knows what Georgians want. "What Georgians want most is, they want a United States Senator that they can relate to and a U.S. Senator whose gonna be of the people helping them," said Handel. Handel also made stops in Macon, Columbus, and Atlanta. She's one of 7 Republicans running in tomorrow's Senate primary.
