Description: That's what Jay spends most of his time talking about, how we're going to create jobs here in Missouri, these next generation jobs that our state needs to attract and bring in as well as the bread and butter issues families are facing. How are we going to make healthcare more affordable and how are we going to make education more affordable?

Republican candidate Kenny Hulshof is also staying busy in these remaining days.
A spokesperson for the Hulshof campaign said he will travel to all four corners of the state. Hulshof says he is also focusing on the economy and on creating jobs in Missouri.

Description: We'll be running all over the place. It's a big state, we're trying to touch all corners. That's the way this entire campaign has been. We've left no county, no region of the state has not seen Jay. This is really important to Jay and the campaign that we we communicate with voters across the state.

Even though his schedule is rather hectic, Shur says Nixon has great momentum going in to the weekend in light of recent polls.

A spokesperson from Hulshof's campaign said he also has a busy schedule over the weekend as he has stops planned in all four corners of the state.
