As we get closer to the State Senate election for District 26, Democrat Nathan Granger is making his final rounds throughout Vermilion Parish..
He showed KATC a closer look at what he stands for and a closer look at his hometown of Erath.
"I'm willing to go to Baton Rouge to provide a breath of fresh air," were words from Granger at a recent debate in Lafayette.
For most people in District 26, they're surrounded by fresh air and they will cast their ballots for their new State Senator on Saturday.
As campaigning comes to a close for Nathan Granger, he says the ultimate goal is to let the people know he's fighting for them.
"Jobs, jobs and jobs." Granger said. "People need to go to work, they are hurting and struggling."
He says, "everything about this race is about education and employment." Granger says, "I live it everyday."
Granger spends his day chatting and shaking hands and people at Moo Noo's Coffee House say they enjoy that time and they have faith in Granger.
"I'm a Republican." 86-year-old Aldon Leblanc says, "but I am going to vote for Nate simply because I think he is the best man."
"He'll get the job done where no body else did," Farrell Desormeaux said.
One man says he admires how Granger reaches out to the youth, recently building the sports complex, a place where kids go after school..
"He does a lot for the young people over here." Orris Belanger says, "I think he's going to be a great asset for us."
Granger says it's all about meeting the needs of the people.
"It is very important that we prioritize." Granger says, "and protect everything like education, because education is opportunity."
