(WTVM) -

The race for United States Senate is one that we're keeping a close eye on Tuesday night.

Four Democrats are facing off for their party's nomination to replace the retiring Georgia Senator Saxby Chambliss.

Todd Robinson, who lives in Columbus, is one of those candidates. Robinson spoke to News Leader 9 about his campaign and his support for the Columbus area.

"When you can have your home base support you, that means everything," Robinson said. "Because when you go abroad you know that you're taking support with you, and you know word-of-mouth from Columbus to surrounding areas in Georgia, that means everything."

Steen Miles, Michelle Nunn, and Branko Radulovacki are also seeking the democratic nomination for U.S. Senate.

There are seven Republican candidates vying for the Senate seat.

Businessman David Perdue, former Secretary of State Karen Handel and Representative Jack Kingston are the frontrunners, while two fiery conservative congressmen, Paul Broun and Phil Gingrey, trail behind.

Other candidates include Art Gardner and Derrick Grayson.
