COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) - As the clocks clicks toward Election Day, politicians are pushing for Columbus residents to get out and vote.

We were at the GOP candidate fly-in on Monday, Nov. 3 as U.S. Senate candidate David Perdue and Georgia's first lady Sandra Deal got off their planes to greet supporters at the Columbus airport.

Perdue rallied with his supporters.

"If you're as outraged as i am by the size and scope of this government by the fact that they wont secure our borders and by the fact debt is piling up on the backs of our kids and grand kids and I'm asking the people of Georgia to stand with me and ill be your voice in the US senate fighting for you and the problems going on everyday in the sate of Georgia, " Perdue said.

Sandra Deal was pushed to keep her husband in office.

"We want to stay here so we want Georgia to be the very best and were willing to work as hard as we can to keep Georgia great and to make Georgia even better for the people who come after us," Deal said.

Georgia's battle for Senate between libertarian Amanda Swafford, republican David Perdue, and democrat Michelle Nunn  has turned into a major battleground in the national fight for control of the Senate.

A USA today poll shows David Perdue leading Michelle Nunn 48 percent to 44 percent.

Nunn also canvassed the streets of Columbus campaigning for undecided voters during her last stop in the fountain city over the weekend.

"We've been here a dozen times over the course of the elections. We visited our campaign headquarters first to say thank you to the volunteers we have literally hundreds of volunteers  that are fanning out across this community knocking on doors,  that are calling people that are telling people how important it is to get out and vote on Tuesday," Nunn said.

Polls are open Tuesday, Nov. 4 from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m.
