The candidates vying to serve as Georgia's next governor have just hours left to secure the votes they need to win.

Monday morning, Secretary of State Brian Kemp launched what he dubbed his "barnstorming tour" of the state from Peachtree DeKalb Airport. The Republican hopeful made stops in Columbus, Albany, Savannah, and Augusta.

"Ladies and gentlemen, this is a battle for the soul of our state, a fight for our future," Kemp told the crowd gathered at the hanger.  "I'm asking for your vote and support to keep Georgia moving forward. Thank you so much.  God bless you and get out there and vote tomorrow."

Democrat Stacey Abrams campaigned in Savannah and other southeast Georgia cities, while volunteers at her campaign office in East Point made phone calls to encourage voters to get to the polls.

"This is a very important election and I just like to do what I can," explained Abrams volunteer Sammie Holloway.  "I'm feeling pretty excited, you know, as the kids would say, 'I'm feeling pretty pumped up!'"

The polls will be open Tuesday, November 6 from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m.
