ATLANTA (AP) - Campaigns for Georgia governor and U.S. Senate are nearing the end - or at least the next round of voting is set for Tuesday, since both races could head to runoffs.

In the governor's race, Republican Gov. Nathan Deal and his challenger, Democratic state Sen. Jason Carter, have unveiled their closing ads. Republican David Perdue and Democrat Michelle Nunn also have their final television appeals.

All four candidates speak themselves in the ads, rather than relying on announcers that have dominated advertising in this campaign season. Carter is the only one who doesn't appear on camera while speaking, while Deal is the only one of the four who directly mentions his opponent.

Friday is the last early voting day. Polls will be open Tuesday from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m.
