Boston mayoral hopefuls ramp up campaigns as election looms

BOSTON — Boston’s mayoral hopefuls are scrambling to get their voters to the polls ahead of next Tuesday’s preliminary election that will almost certainly for the first time narrow the field of contenders to two candidates of color, possibly both women.

City Councilor Michelle Wu, who has held a first-place lead in polls, is planning a Saturday rally with Sen. Elizabeth Warren. The other candidates — acting Mayor Kim Janey, city councilors Andrea Campbell and Annissa Essaibi George and former economic development chief John Barros — appear to be vying for second.

Only two candidates will appear on the November ballot.
