Obama was coming to Connecticut to campaign for Democratic Dannel P. Malloy, who is in a close re-election race with Republican challenger Tom Foley. The president was to visit Central High School in Bridgeport, where he was expected to promote the candidacy of Malloy and other Democrats — such as U.S. Rep. Jim Himes, who represents most of Sheton and is running against former state Sen. Dan Debicella of Shelton.

Election Day is Tuesday, Nov. 4.
