ALBANY, GA (WALB) - Congressman Jack Kingston and his opponent David Perdue made stops across south Georgia Monday ahead of Tuesday's runoff election.

Congressman Jack Kingston from Savannah says his experience in the House in agriculture and defense makes him the best choice for the GOP nomination.

Kingston, who finished second in the May primary, believes his campaigning in south Georgia will carry him to victory tomorrow night.

"South Georgia was our ticket to the runoff. Tomorrow, south Georgia is the ticket to the nomination," said Kingston.

Former Georgia Secretary of State Karen Handel, who finished third in the primary, was campaigned with Kingston Monday.

Kingston's opponent, Republican Candidate David Perdue, also made a couple of stops in South Georgia Monday.

He flew into the Albany Airport this morning for his first stop of seven as he wrapped up his statewide Fly-Around Tour.

Perdue says he wants to remind everyone of the changes he wants to make in Washington.

"The response has been overwhelming over the last 12 days," said Perdue. "Meeting people who have never been involved in politics before but are coming out to encourage us. They're praying for us. They're talking about it. They're getting people to vote for us and I'm really encouraged by that."

Businessman Perdue says he's met thousands of people during his 12-day tour.
