On Sunday, we talked talked to Robert Mills. He told us he's going to keep doing what he's doing and focus on legal issues and lawsuit abuse.

"We're going to be a little more energetic," said Mills. "We may spend a little more time on the ground knocking on doors and talking to people, but it's really the same platform, the same message, the same exuberance that we've had from day one. So 32 more days."

We also caught up with Tammy Phelps Sunday night. She says she ready to get back on the campaign trail and get those voters that she missed.

"Glad that day is over," Phelps said. "We can start over. I'm so appreciative to all my voters and support. I really thought we could find that five percent, but we'll keep it moving starting over, clean slate and start over."
