In what was often a heated affair, Kemp and Perdue clashed on topics like elections, rising crime, former President Donald Trump's endorsement, economic recovery and who would be more likely to defeat Democrat candidate for governor Stacey Abrams.

Republicans Catherine Davis, Kandiss Taylor and Tom Williams are also challenging Kemp.

The Republican primary will be held May 24. The winner will face Abrams, who faces no opposition in the primary, on Nov. 8.

A candidate must win more than 50% of the vote to avoid a primary runoff. If needed, a primary runoff would be held June 21.

The last debate is at 7 p.m. Sunday. You'll be able to watch the full debate on GPB.

On Saturday, Taylor will make campaign stops in Summerville, Chickamauga, Fort Oglethorpe, Ringgold, Dalton and Chatsworth. Times and locations can be found here.

Early voting in Georgia begins Monday.
