Candidates for the District 3 seat on the Wake County School Board spent Saturday stumping for some last-minute support.This is the last weekend before the run-off election between the two candidates, which will be held Tuesday.

On Saturday, Hill got support from Democratic congressmen Brad Miller and David Price. At a rally, he said he was thankful to those who have helped his campaign.

"I appreciate the hundreds and hundreds of volunteers who have worked on my behalf, on our behalf, for the last couple of months, particularly since October 11th," Hill said.

Following the rally, Hill's supporters came out to neighborhods to pound the pavement. Meanwhile, his opponent, Heather Losurdo, was doing the exact same thing.

"We had some of the volunteers meet this morning for coffee and donuts at 9am, and we had about 30 people go from there, and we've got other folks out walking too," Losurdo said.

The outcome of the run-off will determine the school board's balance of power. If incumbent Democrat Kevin Hill beats Republican Heather Losurdo, the school board majority would switch parties.
