ST. LOUIS, MO (KTVI)-The weekend brought one last big push for votes before Tuesday’s Democratic mayoral primary. Both candidates, current mayor Francis Slay and Aldermanic president Lewis Reed, hit the streets Saturday to talk to voters and encourage them to get to the polls.
It has been a contentious race focused on personal and controversial issues ranging from how Mayor Slay is handling crime in the city to Reed’s wife stepping down as a city judge. There was also talk of how campaign funds on both sides were handled.
On Saturday, both candidates spent the day talking to people at coffee shops and churches. Each candidate is working to attract African- American voters.
Slay is looking to make history with a fourth term.
