ATLANTA - Candidates for U.S. Senate and the U.S. House in Georgia geared up for a busy weekend of campaigning before voters head back to the polls on Tuesday.

Voters will choose a Republican candidate to take on Democrat Michelle Nunn in the Fall. Businesssman David Perdue is taking on U.S. Rep. Jack Kingston.

Meanwhile, there’s also a heated race to replace Kingston in the U.S. House. Dr. Bob Johnson is taking on State Sen. Buddy Carter for the right to represent Southeast Georgia.

Both men have traded charges over who is the true conservative. The Club for Growth has spent $338,000 on TV ads in the race, according to a report in the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.

Two Democratic candidates are also running in the runoff, but the district leans Republican. The polls are open from 7 a.m. until 7 p.m. on Tuesday.
