With Election Day just two days away, President Barack Obama was in the Park City this afternoon to campaign for Gov. Dannel Malloy and the rest of the Democratic ticket.
The president spoke at Bridgeport's Central High School to a lively crowd of about 2,000 people. Free tickets were given to local residents.
The president said Malloy has improved Connecticut's economy and listed some of his accomplishments in office. He urged people to get their friends and family members out to vote on Tuesday.
At least three times, hecklers attempted to interupt the president's remarks until they were drowned out by the crowd's chants of "four more years," in support of Malloy. President Obama laughed and said, "This is a rowdy crowd today."
Several street closures and parking restrictions were in place for the presidential visit.
Malloy's challenger, Tom Foley, spent the day campaigning in Southbury. Foley's campaign said New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie would join him Monday on the campaign trail in Groton.
