ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

The primary elections for Georgia are Tuesday, and one of the Democratic Party candidates for Governor made a stop in Albany Monday.  

Stacey Abrams held a rally to get out the vote.

She met with voters and campaign volunteers to talk about her plans for South Georgia's economy.

Abrams promised to create 45,000 jobs within a decade by using cities in South Georgia to produce renewable energy.

She also promised to focus on veterans and their progress, as well as investing in local business. 

"It's been my pleasure to be here in Albany, to go to Terrell County and Clay County, to go to Desoto, to go to Camilla and Thomasville because until we see all of Georgia, we can't make the promise I know we can make as a state," said Abrams.

About a couple dozen people came out for the rally.
