With just days before the general election, both of Mississippi's gubernatorial candidates have been in east Mississippi trying to pick up support.
Gov. Haley Barbour started the day in Louisville, stopped in Noxapater and Philadelphia, and then met with the lunch crew at Jean's Restaurant in downtown Meridian.
"We aren't going to take anything for granted. We want people to go out and vote," said Barbour. "The worst thing that could happen is if people don't vote."
Democratic challenger John Arthur Eaves was in Meridian Tuesday evening. He says Barbour's record as governor isn't one he would be proud to discuss.
"What about those jobs, Lauderdale County, that have been lost? No help with that," said Eaves of the governor.
In the last few months, the governor's race has heated up. It's hard to turn on the television without seeing one of their ads.
Barbour has raised $9.1 million. Eaves has raised $5.5 million. It's a lot of money, but still is not enough to exceed the totals raised during the 2003 election between former governor, Ronnie Musgrove, and Barbour.
But the campaign spending will grow, with several big campaigning days still to go.
