SEATTLE - The candidates for Mayor say they believe the race is closer than the polls indicate.

Mike McGinn and Ed Murray spent Sunday night with supporters, and trying to take shots at each other.
 
"I don't believe there is a double digit gape, I don't think this is won yet," said Murray, outside a private fundraiser at a Queen Anne home.
 
He also accused McGinn staffers of "harassment" after some posted a Facebook message of a Planned Parenthood staff member.  The organization recently endorsed Murray.
 
"His campaign decided to put the phone number of one of the individuals who worked for Planned Parenthood up on his Facebook, and I told people to call her," said Murray. "You're opening people up to dangerous situations."
 
"I do not know what they're talking about to be honest with you," countered McGinn. "We provided the phone number that was listed on the Seattle Ethics and Elections Website, as the phone number of the campaign."
 
He characterized the issue as a sign the race is closer than polls indicate, and says he's had positive feedback ever since the televised debates.
 
Both men conceded that the race's outcome may not be known on Tuesday.
