Local Candidates Make Last Minute Push for Votes

Last week, area republicans had a pre-election party at their headquarters to rally support for their candidates in the final days before the election. Today the democrats threw their pre-canvassing kick-off early this morning. Although it looked like a party here this morning, it's still too soon for a celebration on either side. Both say there's still work to be done.

"I am going to be knocking on doors, campaigning right up until the polls close," said 20th District Kentucky State Representative Candidate Regina Webb.

"We have a full-blown campaign for the next whatever it takes, 30...40 hrs," said Rep. Jody Richards.

Both candidates and party volunteers are taking to the streets, and you'll see them out posting signs and knocking on doors all day and into the morning.

"I have literally walked for three and a half months, but I have really enjoyed it, but I've met alot of people and renewed alot of friendships," said Rep. Richards.

Enjoying the opportunity to speak with voters is something they can agree on.

"Meeting alot of people... that's my favorite part of it... getting out, meeting the voters, and finding out what their needs are," said Webb.

Both sides say the feedback they've received from phone calls and canvassing makes them confident.

"Democrats, republicans and independents have said they are for us, and I feel good about that," said Rep. Richards.

"If I win tomorrow night, like I think I'm going to, I'm ready to start not January, but Wednesday," said Webb.

Richards and Webb say their main goal today and tomorrow is not just "getting out the vote," but getting people to actually go out and vote, because now it's not just your support they need, but your ballot.
