WOODSTOCK, Ga. (AP) - Georgia Senate hopefuls are making a final push in the crowded Republican primary.

Businessman David Perdue was in suburban Atlanta attending church on Sunday with one of the state's largest congregations. Perdue didn't speak at Woodstock Baptist Church, but sat on the front row beside senior pastor Johnny Hunt.

Rep. Jack Kingston is preparing for events Monday after a rainstorm forced cancellation of a Sunday picnic with voters.

Former Secretary of State Karen Handel is scheduled this afternoon to appear with conservative radio talk show host Erick Erickson.

Another congressman, Phil Gingrey, is working the phones with his family and volunteers, calling supporters and urging them to vote in Tuesday's primary.

A July 22 runoff is expected, with the GOP nominee facing Democrat Michelle Nunn in November.
