Thousands waited in line at Central High School in Bridgeport, where President Obama spoke Sunday afternoon to back the State's Democrats and Governor Dannel Malloy in his campaign for a second term. 

It was a cold Sunday with chilling winds, but that didn't stop nearly 2,000 people from waiting in a line that wrapped around the block to see the President. While some were there for the once in a lifetime experience of seeing the President, many were there to rally for the Democrats as Tuesday's Election draws near, and Sunday's attendees say a visit from the President is a great way to encourage people to get out and vote. 

President Obama made it clear just how important that vote is to a lively crowd in Central High School's packed gym, reminding them the narrow margin Malloy won by four years ago. 

The President wasn't met without opposition,  interrupted several times by protesters in support of immigration reform. But the protestors were drowned out by the crowd's chanting, as the President continued his praise of the Governor. 

Governor Malloy will face Republican opponent Tom Foley on Tuesday's ticket. Polls in Connecticut will be open from 6 a.m. to 8 p.m. For more information, visit http://www.sots.ct.gov
