Election Day is just a few short days away and the candidates for U.S. Senate are campaigning hard to get votes in eastern Kentucky.

One of them was in the mountains Thursday.

Republican incumbent Senator Mitch McConnell is in eastern Kentucky right now.

One of his stops included the Big Sandy Regional Airport in Floyd County.

Senator McConnell made stops in London and Hazard, where he drew large crowds of supporters.

He's asking those supporters to work hard in the next few days to ensure he's re-elected next Tuesday.

McConnell says he has the momentum.

“We're surging, have a bigger lead than we had earlier and heading toward the finish line in first place,” McConnell said.

McConnell is expected back in eastern Kentucky this weekend.

Democratic challenger Bruce Lunsford was in Louisville Thursday, but is making a stop in eastern Kentucky soon with Hillary Clinton.
