Republican candidate for governor Bob Stefanowski is making 52 stops in 9 days fronting the Nov. 6 general election against Democrat Ned Lamont including an appearance Saturday 3:30 p.m. at Rick Torres’ Harborview Market in Black Rock, the popular gathering place for pols, neighbors and active community members.
Calling it the Rebuild Connecticut Road Tour, Stefanowski will make Bridgeport his fourth stop of the day on the initial leg of the tour. See entire schedule here. Torres is a former member of the City Council and three-time mayoral candidate. Black Rock is the last bastion of Republican voters in the city, a neighborhood where Torres has performed well on the ballot be it for mayor, City Council or State House when he lost a close special election in 2015 to Steve Stafstrom in the 129th Assembly District.
Public polling shows a tight race for governor.
