Bridgeport mayoral candidates getting in some last minute campaigning

On Tuesday, Bridgeport residents will know which Republican and which Democrat will face off in the mayor's race in November.

There are a total of eight candidates, six Democrats and two Republicans, in the race.

With less than 48 hours until the primary, a motorcade of current Mayor and Democrat John Fabrizi's supporters prepared for a drive through the city's streets. They're confident Tuesday's vote will be just the beginning of extending the mayor's five month term.

Many consider Democrat Chris Caruso Fabrizi's toughest opponent. The state representative worked the church circuit on Sunday to encourage voters to head to the polls on Tuesday.

News 12 Connecticut also found Democrat Max Medina and his family making Sunday service rounds. With six Democrats on the ballot rounded off by John Guman, Bob Keeley and Charles Coviello, Medina says there is no room for an underdog.

On the flip side, two Republicans were also hard at work on Sunday. Rick Torres balanced a busy day between his business and his campaign. Torres' opponent Adrienne Farrar-Houell spent her day going door to door in Bridgeport neighborhoods and checking in at her campaign headquarters.

All the candidates are confident there will be a high turnout for Tuesday's primary, especially if the weather stays as nice as it has been.
