Sen. Kamala Harris, Donald Trump Jr. in Georgia for final week of early voting
ATLANTA - Just days after President Trump's visit to Macon and hours following the final presidential debate, vice presidential candidate Kamala Harris was stumping in Atlanta for the first time since being added to the Democratic ticket.
Sen. Harris' campaign stop in Atlanta focused on rallying early voters -- something Georgia has seen in record-breaking numbers this election with a 121% increase compared to 2016. The vice presidential nominee held a drive-in event at Morehouse College.
Harris also attended several virtual fundraising events on the eve of Mandatory Saturday Voting.
She recently returned to the trail after postponing events in light of several people tied to her campaign contracting coronavirus.

Harris joined the growing list of big names from both presidential campaigns zeroing in on Georgia, proving to be a battleground state. Polls show just over a one-point spread between Trump and Biden; Biden has a slight advantage.
Democrats are hoping to flip the Peach State for the first time in nearly three decades.
Harris' husband was on the ground here last weekend and is among the Democrats who accused Republican Sen. David Perdue of mocking the name of the first black woman on a presidential ticket.
Donald Trump Jr. was also Georgia headlining an event in Sandy Springs on Friday afternoon. He touted his father's performance during Thursday night's presidential debate and said while former Vice President Joe Biden is trying to paint himself as a moderate, his choice of Harris as a running mate proves he not.
President Donald Trump's son touted his father's economic record prior to the pandemic and said Georgians have to encourage everyone to re-elect the president.
He was also stumping for his father in Macon one week after the president touched down there.
