ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

We are almost 24 hours away from the polls opening across Georgia. Candidates for governor and the U.S. senate will be making last minute campaign stops throughout the state.

Over the weekend Democrat Michelle Nunn and her family were at Carter's Grill and Restaurant in downtown Albany with supporters for a meet and greet, and to encourage the community to vote this Tuesday.

Nunn said, "I believe we need to bring our Georgia values to Washington."

Her competitor, Republican David Perdue, also hit southwest Georgia but at the Smoke n' Pig restaurant in Valdosta on Friday. Former Arkansas governor Mike Huckabee was along side for support saying the long-time businessman would be a refreshing change in the Senate

Governor Nathan Deal was in Gainesville with New Jersey Governor Chris Christie alongside for support on Saturday. Deal told reporters he feels confident about his re-election due to the strong turnout of early voters. 

Democrat Jason Carter was made a trip to Albany at Second Mount Zion Baptist Church to speak to the community. He feels as someone who grew up in the area it means a lot to give something back. 

"We have the ability to become a powerhouse, and put all the ingredients we've got. They're just not putting them together in a way that makes sense. And if we had some leadership up there that cares about this area we are going to unleash a lot of giant potential."

Governor Deal will be have a fly around Monday morning, he will be at Southwest Georgia Regional Airport in Albany at 11, then will be headed to the Thomasville Regional Airport.
