Candidate Nunn reads to Dougherty County students

Candidates in Georgia's U.S. Senate race continue to make their way around the state with less than three weeks left before the election.

Democrat Michelle Nunn and other volunteers read to students at Martin Luther King Junior Elementary in Dougherty County.

Nunn is running against Republican David Perdue and Libertarian Amanda Swafford. Polls suggest a close race and Nunn says she's focusing on winning on the fourth.

"Of course, it's going to be a close race. And so we are working really hard and trying to get our message out to people, encouraging people to get out and vote early. I went out and voted yesterday," said Nunn.

Early voting began Monday around the state.

The winner will replace current Senator Saxby Chambliss, who is retiring.
