Cleveland mayoral candidates race to the finish.
CLEVELAND, Ohio – The race to replace Cleveland Mayor Frank Jackson will come to an end Tuesday.
A slew of candidates came down to two Democrats, Cleveland Council Chairman Kevin Kelley and nonprofit leader Justin Bibb.
Both candidates now have only a few hours to campaign and are waiting for their supporters to vote.
Kevin Kelley cast his vote when the polls opened on Tuesday.
“I feel great,” he told FOX 8’s Stacey Frey on Tuesday morning.
Kelley said she felt she had given voters a reason to support her candidacy.
He voted at his church, St. Thomas More Parish in Brooklyn.
“There is always more you could have done in one campaign,” he said.
Candidate Justin Bibb cast his vote early Friday with his grandmother.
“Let’s give our city a chance for a fresh start,” Bibb tweeted on Tuesday.
Bibb will be watching the returns of his church, the Olivet Institutional Baptist Church.
Kevin Kelley is hosting an Election Night Party at The Harp.
The polls close at 7:30 pm
Mayor Frank Jackson has been in office since 2006.
FOX 8 will be with both candidates throughout the day.
