Chants of "Obama!" and "Yes We Can!" echoed through the Columbus Government Center plaza this afternoon as supporters of presidential candidate Barack Obama rallied together in the final days before the Georgia primary election.
About 40 people, many of them wearing Obama for President stickers and T-shirts, arrived to hear remarks from U.S. Rep. Sanford Bishop and Virginia Gov. Tim Kaine in support of Obama, the Illinois senator who is competing for the Democratic presidential nomination against New York Sen. Hillary Clinton.
Georgia's primary election is Tuesday.
Kaine, co-chair of Obama's national campaign, traveled to Savannah and Columbus today to canvas for support.
