(KHNL) - The candidates know every vote counts, especially in the highest profile race this primary election. The Senate race between Daniel Akaka and Ed Case.

Both candidates are doing what they can to get those last-minute votes.

Senator Akaka spent this last Sunday before election day with supporters at his family day event at McKinley High School.

"I'm energized and I'm looking forward to primary election and you know how I feel, very confident," said Akaka.

Akaka is leading the race, according to an exclusive poll done in partnership with The Honolulu Advertiser.

"Because he's honest, sincere and he knows what he's doing," said Hazel Kauahikaua, who supports Akaka.

But Case says he's continuing his grass roots campaign, talking to as many undecided voters as possible.

"How about you, get chance?" he asked one man.

Case spent part of his Sunday afternoon walking through Ala Moana Beach Park meeting local families.

"But the main thing is people do have a choice and they can choose between the past and future or they can choose between the way things are so I think it's gonna be an interesting choice for people," said Case.

"He's very nonchalant. I was surprised how free he was. He wasn't oppressive or anything," said Kimberly Mow, who supports Case.

Come Saturday, the candidates will find out how much this last minute campaigning has helped them.

    Trump has already rejected the idea of bringing in the FBI to reopen its background check of Kavanaugh. Should he order such a review, it would likely delay a confirmation vote until after the election.
