ALBANY, N.Y. -- With the primary only about two weeks away, candidates are hoping to get their message out to voters.
In Albany, Democratic voters will be choosing between former city councilman Corey Ellis and City treasurer Kathy Sheehan for the mayor's job. It's the first time in two decades where there will be a change of post.
Last month, YNN released the results of an exclusive YNN-Siena College that found Sheehan holding a strong lead over Ellis.
Ellis spoke to Capital Tonight's Liz Benjamin about his campaign and he says he doesn't think the poll is an indicator for the outcome of the race.
"I don't pay attention to poll, I pay attention to voters. And I know sitting here, talking to you, the voters are with me. I can't tell you hundreds of voters tell me 'we're not listening to the polls, we're not listening to the polls.' We're focused on the people that go out and vote in the primaries," Ellis said.
Sheehan will be on Capital Tonight Tuesday evening to share her thoughts on the race and her plans for Albany.
Both candidates have accepted YNN's invitation to a televised debate on the College of St. Rose Campus on September 3rd. You can watch the debate exclusively on YNN at 7 p.m.
