Republican VP candidate Mike Pence rallies in Perry

PERRY, Georgia (41NBC/WMGT) – Republican Vice Presidential nominee Mike Pence rallied on Monday in Perry.

He told supporters he and presidential candidate Donald Trump are set out to earn votes and make voters more accountable.

“Georgia, we need to decide here and now today that the next president to make appointments to the Supreme Court of the United States will be President Donald Trump,” Pence shouted.

He says the choice for the 45th President of the United States should be clear.

“Donald Trump is still standing stronger than ever before and fighting for the American people and he’s going to do that all the way to the White House on November the 8th,” Pence said.

Several hundred supporters filled a building at the Georgia National Fairgrounds to hear the Indiana governor.

Pence says he feels a vote for Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton would be a continuation of President Obama’s time in office.

“The truth is 7 1/2 years of leadership by Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton has weakened America’s place in the world and stifled our nation’s economy,” he said.

He promised change if he and Trump were elected and also talked about his admiration for his running mate’s respect for those who work blue collar jobs.

“He’s never forgotten the men and women of this country who work with their hands, who grow the food, who build our roads and bridges, who tend to our sick, who teach our kids,” Pence said.

He challenged his advocates to encourage Republicans who don’t support Trump to think again. Adding ads, time in the news, and knocking on doors won’t help as much as the support of a neighbor.

“…don’t matter a thimble compared to the difference to somebody who knows you at work, or worship, or in your neighborhood who trusts you and respects you,” Pence said.

Governor Pence is also speaking in Atlanta and Dalton during his stop.
