On this final day of campaigning before voters go to the polls, Lieberman began the day by bringing breakfast to the Fire Fighters at the New Haven Fire House at 8:30 am ET. He then was scheduled to visit workers at a construction site in New Haven at 9:15 am ET.

He finishes the day by joining customers for dinner at Anthony Jack's Restaurant in Southington at 7:10 pm ET, and then attending a Little League game between the Glastonbury American and the Colchester, VT team at 8:00 pm ET.

For his part, Ned Lamont was scheduled to visit at 5:00 am ET with third shift workers and ER staff at Lawrence & Memorial Hospital in New London, CT.
