Mayoral candidates talk tactics leading up to Spokane's general election

SPOKANE, Wash. - The Spokane general election is fast approaching, and mayoral candidates have no time to waste. 

Ben Stuckart and Nadine Woodward expressed on Wednesday the importance of going door-to-door in the days leading up to Election Day. 

Both candidates agree it’s best to have voters know just who they’re voting for. 

The election office says more than 18,000 ballots have come back in for Spokane’s mayoral race. 

As far as how the candidates are feeling? They say they aren’t really nervous. Instead, their focus is making that last push for votes.  

“You know I feel confident but I don’t take anything for granted,” said Woodward. “We still work hard and we’ve always run like we’re five points down so it’s just a lot of hard work.” 

“I don’t know what the mindset is other than you gotta keep working until the last day,” Stuckart said. “Just keep making phone calls, making texts and knocking on doors.”
