Kingston and Perdue make final stops in Augusta

AUGUSTA, GA (WFXG) -

Primary run-off for Georgia are tomorrow and U.S. Senate candidates Jack Kingston and David Perdue flew into Daniel Field today for a last few minute remarks.

"We have a large number of people in Georgia that are unemployed, under-employed and have actually stopped looking for work," said Perdue during his visit.

"Georgia is going to be a player in the national scene in the next century and we want to make sure it's ready," Kingston said.

And both Kingston and Perdue said they are ready to represent the state of Georgia.

"We have shown ourselves to be tested and proven conservative," Kingston said. "We have united the conservative family and we are reaching out to common sense voters for a strong victory."

"I'm an outsider and I've never been in politics before and I just think he's been there for 22 years; if he was really going to make a difference, he would have done it already," Perdue said about Kingston.

Each candidate also touted their ideas of how to improve Augusta and CSRA.

"There's a move in the EPA to shut it down. Congress, on a bi-partisan basis, voted to keep the MOX project going but we need to make sure that's done and put to bed because there are so many jobs related to it," Kingston said.

"A lot of people are talking about how bad Obamacare is," said Perdue. "They've been canceled. My own insurance was canceled and then I'm hearing from a lot of small businesses people and bankers about how Dod Frank is affect their businesses and really limiting their ability to create jobs."

Georgians will have until 7 on Tuesday night, to cast their vote for either Perdue or Kingston. The winner of the republican primary will face Michelle Nunn in the November elections.
