SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) - The United States senate race is winner takes all and the candidates are bringing in the heavy hitters down the home stretch.

Today, Senator Saxby Chambliss was in Savannah for a rally and fundraiser. By his side was former Republican presidential hopeful and former Massachusetts governor Mitt Romney.

Romney said this senate seat is a must win for Republicans. "This election is an election that of course Georgians care about, but the whole country as well cares a lot about whether there's going to be balance in the senate," said Romney.

"Whether there's going to be at least 40 Republicans in the senate and Saxby Chambliss is really critical to maintaining a two party system that our democracy was built on."

US Congressman Jack Kingston and Georgia State senator Eric Johnson were also at the rally. Former presidential candidate Senator John McCain has also been in Georgia recently campaigning with Chambliss.

Chambliss's Democratic opponent isn't short on star power either. Jim Martin campaigned with former president Bill Clinton earlier this week and former vice president Al Gore will be in Atlanta this weekend stumping for Martin.
