FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WANE) One day ahead of Election Day, candidates in the race for governor made one final stop in Fort Wayne reaching out to voters.

“Here we are just one day away, one wake up away from Hoosiers expressing their voice about which direction they want the state to go,” Republican Eric Holcomb said as he met with voters Monday.

Holcomb stopped at the Don Hall’s restaurant on Bluffton Road Monday morning. Holcomb, who entered the race only 100 days ago, said his camp is in overdrive working to reach as many voters as possible.

“If there is any undecided voters out there we are available and accessible and answer any question we might have and to just thank our volunteers for getting us to this strong position we find ourselves in right now,” Holcomb said.

An hour later, his opponent John Gregg stopped in the Summit City. Gregg, who’s also traveling around the state, said they’re not stopping until the polls close tomorrow.

“We’ve got to keep it up and we’re going to keep it up today,” Gregg said. “That’s why I’m here in Fort Wayne. I wanted to thank all the volunteers who are calling and knocking on doors and wanted to remind the people up here in northeast Indiana how important they are.”

Both said they’re confident heading into Tuesday, hitting on the same messages they’ve focused on throughout their campaigns.

“Our message is that we’ve got a plan and we’ve had a plan and that’s why we believe we’ve been endorsed by virtually every major newspaper in the state of Indiana. We’ve got a written plan with details. We focus on the economy and we’re going to keep delivering that message until the polls close,” Gregg said.

“We’ve taken a state that was $800,000 in debt to a triple A credit rating status. You can’t get a higher credit rating. There are more people working than ever before in our state’s history. We’ve created 161,000 new jobs just since 2013. Indiana is on a roll,” Holcomb said.

Both plan on campaigning all day Tuesday until the polls close.
