BAINBRIDGE, Ga. (WTXL) — In Bainbridge, Senator Kelly Loeffler spent Saturday afternoon campaigning to supporters to get out and vote early. That's the message being spread by both parties.

In a statement to ABC 27 about his supporters, Senate candidate Reverend Raphael Warnock's campaign said:

"This is a critical election and the energy on the ground makes one thing plain: Georgians are excited to vote for Rev. Warnock."

"Please, contact your friends, your family, your coworkers, folks at church and school, pick up the phone a few times a day," said Loeffler at her rally.

Her message, appealing to Georgia farmers like Jay Wells.

"Well everyone has to have their voice heard," said Wells. "Win or lose you need to have your voice heard, and that goes for democrats and republicans a like."

After rallying her vote on issues like job loss, the presidential election, and her democratic challenger Reverend Warnock, Senator Loeffler told ABC 27, if Georgia fights for her, she'll in return do the same for them.

"I'm in Washington fighting for Georgians making sure that they have an outside voice in Georgia, so I'm asking Georgians that if they will be my voice on January 5th, I'll be theirs in Washington for years to come," said Loeffler.

In the statement from her opponent's campaign, it continues:

"Reverend Warnock will continue to travel the state and speak to what exactly is on the ballot this year: coronavirus relief for families and small businesses, access to quality, affordable health care, guaranteed coverage for pre-existing conditions, jobs that pay a livable wage and voting rights."

Early voting in Georgia ends on Dec. 31st.
