The mayoral candidates were pulling out all stops on this, the final, full day of campaigning. Democratic nominee Jorge Elorza even serving meals at Dexter Manor senior housing in Providence.

“There are only two ways to run, unopposed, and run scared. And so we’re not taking anything for granted. We’re going to fight to the very last hour, and make sure we reach out to every last voter.”

Rhode Island‘s two U.S. Senators joined  Elorza on the campaign trail.

ABC6 Chief Political Reporter Mark Curtis said, “If history is any indication, this could be a very close race. Buddy Cianci won his first race fro City Hall, by just 700 votes; his second race, a mere 3000 votes.”

Cianci campaigned at Compare Market Monday afternoon, in the city’s heavily populated Latino community.

He knows it’s a fight to the finish.

Reporter Mark Curtis question: What’s your prediction on the margin tomorrow night?

“Oh I don’t make any predictions, but I know that it is going to be a close race, but we have the better ground game and we also have won on a number of fronts and I can feel momentum. I feel very confident we are going to win this race,” said Vincent “Buddy” Cianci, Jr.

As for Republican Dan Harrop, he was heading out for some last minute door–to–door campaigning, saying his plan for receivership can save Providence.

“The municipal form of bankruptcy. We really feel the city is headed that way.  And the quicker we get through it, the quicker we can recover,” said Dr. Dan Harrop, (R) Nominee for Providence Mayor.

No matter who wins on Tuesday, the winds of change are coming to Providence City Hall.
