Gubernatorial Candidates Rally Support

With election day just four days away, both candidates are making a last attempt to reach voters on the campaign trial with personal appearances. Governor Perry traveled through the Panhandle, while his opponent, Tony Sanchez made his rounds down in South Texas.

Governor Rick Perry made one of those stops in Lubbock. He arrived around 9:30 Saturday morning for a rally at the Merket Alumni Center. The race for governor is one of the most contested races in the state, and Perry says that has been proven by the early voting numbers.

"We're seeing large early voting numbers. I think voters are paying attention. They're going to vote and I'm very comfortable on November 5th, I will be the next governor for the state of Texas for the next four years," said Perry.

Meanwhile, Democratic challenger, Tony Sanchez is making his last stops on the campaign trail in South Texas. He spent the day in Houston, Austin, and Corpus Christi.
