By  | 

WARREN COUNTY, Ky. (WBKO) -- Mere hours away from polls opening and GOP candidates rally together to make their final push before a day that holds an incredible amount of value both in Kentucky and the United States.

Chants and calls for response garnered attention of folks who filled the barn at Highland Stables in Warren County on Monday evening.

"Are you all ready to stop this so called 'blue wave' and have a red wave tomorrow?" asked Kentucky Commissioner of Agriculture Ryan Quarles as he emceed the rally.

The highly anticipated race for the House and Senate is one that was most certainly a talking point tonight.

"The republican Senate is not going to be intimidated by an angry mob!" proclaimed Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell to a crowd at Highland Stables.

Senators Mitch McConnell and Rand Paul both in Warren County to push voters to stay red in those areas.

"I hope we're still in the majority," Sen. McConnell said. "We'll find out tomorrow night, the suspense is almost over and it's time for voters to show up and they're doing that in early voting all over the country."

"I hope people will think about how good the economy is, do we really want to change who's in control of Congress in the middle of such a great economy," added Sen. Rand Paul.

Among Kentucky republican congressmen up for election is Brett Guthrie. He says he's confident that the Senate will remain red, but several large suburban cities will determine the fate of the House.

"Those areas are challenging," Guthrie said. "If you had asked me six weeks ago I would've said it would be very challenging for us to keep the House, but I think it's extremely, extremely close."

All of these politicians encouraging voters to check red in tomorrow's election.

"[Warren County] has a state senator race here, three state representative races, we need to put them all in the win column tomorrow and rallying everybody tonight is all a part of that," McConnell mentioned.

"It's time for us to go back and finish the job and keep America moving forward," said Brett Guthrie.
