Gubernatorial candidates take part in final debate

NORWALK -

Connecticut's gubernatorial candidates on Tuesday took part in their final debate before Election Day.

The debate between Republican Bob Stefanowski, Democrat Ned Lamont and independent Oz Griebel was held by the Connecticut Conference of Municipalities at Foxwoods Resort Casino.

Stefanowski once again committed to either reducing or phasing out may taxes.

Lamont said he would fight for Connecticut values and not "Trump values."

Greibel urged voters to think outside the box of the traditional two-party system, insisting his team will provide "real leadership." 

The debate was held on the same day as the release of a new Quinnipiac University poll. It shows Lamont leading Stefanowski by four points -- which is within the margin of error.

Pollsters say Stefanowski's gains are mainly from voters who were supporting Griebel.

According to the poll, Griebel's remaining supporters say their second choice would be Lamont.

Election Day is Tuesday, Nov. 6.
