Richards, Warren Make Last Push For Votes

The democratic candidates for Rochester mayor spent the day urging supporters to vote on Tuesday. The primary is very important because democrats have a huge enrollment edge in the city.
Rochester City Council President Lovely Warren and incumbent mayor Tom Richards are making a last push for votes, "we're going to stick with it right to the end right through tomorrow," said Richards, (D) Mayoral Candidate.  Warren, (D) Mayoral Candidate, is also still campaigning, "I'm coming from walking right now, I'll be out this afternoon walking again."

Richards spent part of his day at the Maplewood YMCA talking to voters, "he's a good spokesman, he speaks from his heart, he clearly differentiates ideas," explained Elizabeth Merkel, who is supporting Richards.

The latest Siena College Rochester Mayoral Primary Poll shows Richards Leading Warren with 63 percent of likely voters backing him.  That's up eight points since August, "one needs to be careful about that, there's only one poll that counts as they say and that's when people vote," said Richards, "so we're treating this as a close race and we're going to work right down to the last wire."

When asked about the poll Warren said, "what we do is go to the door, and from what we hear at the door people are very very excited about the candidacy and we're just going to keep pushing that."

Warren supporter Guy Coppola says he'll be at the polls, Tuesday, "I see the kind of things she brings up, the kind of thing she has done."

The polls will open at 12 p.m. Tuesday, and will close at 9 p.m.
