Yonkers mayoral candidates pulling out all the stops

For the first time in eight years, Yonkers will soon have a new leader. And with just two days to go until voters head to the polls, the candidates are pulling out all the stops.

In front of a packed house at the Polish Community Center in Yonkers Sunday, Mike Spano brought out Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D-N.Y), who gave a rousing endorsement to the democratic mayoral candidate.

The rally was part of Spano's final big push in the lead up to Tuesday's election. With high-profile Democrats behind him, Spano also used the opportunity to bite back at his opponents who he says have been giving his name a bad rap.

Undeterred by the Cuomo endorsement, Spano's biggest contender, Republican John Murtaugh, slammed back against the Democrat's rally.

Sunday, Murtaugh brought out Republican heavy hitters of his own, among them County Executive Rob Astorino(R-Westchester) and a late endorsement from the man whose job he's after, current Republican Mayor Phil Amicone.

The candidates promise they'll be out there campaigning right up until the polls close Tuesday night.
