Ted Cruz campaigns in Atlanta ahead of Super Tuesday

- Days out from Super Tuesday, Republican presidential candidate Ted Cruz is ramping up his efforts to get out the vote.

Cruz held a rally for hundreds of his supporters Saturday at Liberty Plaza near the Georgia State Capitol. Before the crowd, he talked about what he would do if elected president, including repealing Obamacare and confirming and nominating a conservative justice to the U.S. Supreme Court.

However, Cruz, in most of his speech (and during a brief chat with the media), attacked GOP presidential frontrunner Donald Trump.

He talked about whether the businessman represents conservative values.

 "Recognize, if we nominate Donald, then we end up electing Hilary Clinton as president," Cruz said.

Cruz also criticized Trump's temperament while speaking with reporters.

"Donald Trump is liable to curse out a person...You don't know what he's going to say," Cruz said.

Many of Cruz supporters say he is the most conservative candidate in the presidential field.

However, they admit Super Tuesday will be tough with Trump and rival, Sen. Marco Rubio, in the race.

Georgia voter Tom Kohler plans to do what he can to help with turnout.

"I voted last week and I am trying to encourage other people to do the same," Kohler said.
