The former president will be appearing with Democrat Jason Carter at a church in Albany on Sunday morning, a day before early voting begins in Georgia. It's the elder Carter's first public appearance on the campaign trail this year with just over three weeks to go before the Nov. 4 election.
Polls suggest a close race between Deal and Carter, and Democrats are making a big push this year in both the governor's race and a fierce battle for Georgia's open Senate seat. The former president's role previously had been limited to headlining fundraisers and providing counsel to the campaign.
