Valdosta, GA - Hundreds of people packed in to 'The Smokin Pig' this morning to hear some of Georgia's Republican candidates one last time before Tuesday's elections.
Former Georgia Governor, Sonny Perdue, two-time presidential nominee, Mike Huckabee, and many others were there to David Perdue, who's running against Michelle Nunn for U.S. Senate. The seat, key for both parties, in order to claim the majority.
We asked Perdue how he's feeling about election day.
"Well I've never done this before, so I'm not a pundit, but I'll tell you, based on the reaction we are getting, I'm very optimistic that we are going to close this thing out Tuesday night."
Saxby Chambliss' seat is key for both parties, in order to claim the majority.

CANTON, Ga. (AP) -- Texas Sen. Ted Cruz is in Georgia, rallying conservative support for businessman David Perdue as he works to keep a key Senate seat for Republicans.
Polls suggest a tight race between Perdue and Democrat Michelle Nunn with just over a week left before the Nov. 4 election. A Jan. 6 runoff is possible if neither candidate receives more than 50 percent of the vote.
Cruz joined Perdue for Saturday campaign events in two key places -- the northern outskirts of metro Atlanta and along the coast. At a church auditorium in Cherokee County, Cruz told the crowd that Nunn was looking to deceive voters with her message of independence.
Ahead of the visit, Nunn blasted Cruz as the architect of last year's government shutdown and criticized Perdue for supporting it.
