ATLANTA (AP) - The leading candidates for governor are crisscrossing the state trying to drum up support before Tuesday's primary election.

Republicans Nathan Deal, Karen Handel and Eric Johnson as well as Democrat Roy Barnes are hopscotching from airport to airport meeting with supporters from Albany to Augusta. Republican John Oxendine shook hands and stumped for votes at stops in Macon and Atlanta.

The candidates are making their final appeal to voters before polls open at 7 a.m.

Seven Democrats and seven Republicans are vying for their party's nomination for the state's top job.

Turnout has been low in early voting. Elections officials report that Georgia voters cast more than 100,000 ballots before early voting ended Friday. That's a small sliver of the state's 4.9 million registered voters.
