BRIDGEPORT - Supporters of Bridgeport mayoral candidate Mary Jane Foster met for a big rally last night.

Foster is running as an independent, but current Mayor Bill Finch put his support behind her campaign on Tuesday after dropping his fight to get on the November ballot.

Foster says she needs the people of Bridgeport to step up and support her.

She is running against six other candidates including former mayor Joe Ganim, who won the Democratic primary, and Republican Enrique Torres.
