Election day is just ten days away and GOP candidates are spending the last two weekends rallying for votes.
Saturday morning local candidates and volunteers kick started their door to door efforts.
"It's like the baseball game bottom of the ninth and we're trying to just bring it home," said Monroe County Republican Chairman Bill Reilich.
Reilich and a handful of candidates rallied their troops, as volunteers and committee members geared up to do some door to door campaigning.
"The candidates rely on the volunteer efforts and it's really neighbors who see one another and express their commitment for people," said volunteer Nancy Forgue.
Volunteers headed out to each district. Saturday morning they were in Fairport and Perinton setting up signs and passing out fliers.
"I get the sense that more so than any other year in the past, people are motivated to go out and vote. They understand the importance of this election and they understand the importance of this congressional district," said Monroe County Executive and Republican congressional candidate Maggie Brooks.
This Republican rally comes on the heels of Democratic Congressional candidates Louise Slaughter and Kathy Hochul's stamp of approval from Governor Andrew Cuomo and Lieutenant Governor Bob Duffy on Friday.
Both parties hope their last minute campaigning will give people the nudge needed to get out and vote.
