BRIDGEPORT, Conn. (AP) — President Barack Obama is making a final election-season push to help Democrats in Connecticut and Pennsylvania governors’ races.

In Connecticut, Obama rallied a crowd in Bridgeport on behalf of Gov. Dannel Malloy, who’s in a dead heat with Republican Tom Foley. But hecklers protesting U.S. immigration policy repeatedly interrupted him until they were escorted out, one with a T-shirt reading “Obama deports parents.”

Obama told the crowd he supports immigration reform and, as he put it, “I’m not the one blocking it.”

The president is also off to Pennsylvania, where Democrat Tom Wolf leads Republican Gov. Tom Corbett in polls.
