Ford, Foster make push in final hours of St. Petersburg mayoral race
ST. PETERSBURG — Kathleen Ford and Bill Foster pressed for votes across the city Saturday, less than 72 hours before voters will select one of them as St. Petersburg's next mayor.
Foster spent the morning talking to voters in a neighborhood in the north end of the city before meeting volunteers canvassing Midtown neighborhoods.
Ford, meanwhile, unleashed volunteers into city neighborhoods and sent others home with a list of campaign phone calls to make. She planned to spend the afternoon making the rounds at youth football fields.
No opportunity was considered too small in a race most believe will be close.
