One day before the runoff election between Georgia Republican Sen. Saxby Chambliss and Democratic challenger Jim Martin, the GOP will be pulling out its biggest gun yet -- the party's newest star, Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin.

Palin will be at four Chambliss rallies this coming Monday, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports. The runoff is scheduled for Tuesday, Dec. 2. Today, another of the Republican Party's big draws, former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani, was in Georgia campaigning for Chambliss.

Other prominent figures, from both sides of the aisle, have gotten in the race: Bill Clinton and Al Gore campaigned for Martin, while John McCain, Mitt Romney and Mike Huckabee have worked for Chambliss. President-elect Barack Obama hasn't made it down to the state yet -- though Martin's people want him to -- but he has recorded a robo-call on the Democrat's behalf.
