Down to the Wire for LA Mayoral Race

Top two candidates neck-and-neck in the polls


Los Angeles mayoral hopeful Wendy Greuel traded barbs with rivals Eric Garcetti and Jan Perry on Sunday as the leading candidates dashed around the city in a final burst of weekend campaigning, from Encino and Eagle Rock to Venice Beach and South Los Angeles.

The top contenders to succeed Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa sought to shore up support with morning visits to churches and afternoon stops at a taco stand, farmer's market and art gallery.

With the election just two days away, acrimony erupted anew between Greuel, the city controller, and the two City Council members she sees as her most formidable opponents, Garcetti and Perry.
