Hot In Hartford Semi-Finals: Luis Cotto v. Howard Baldwin
It's time for the second semi-finals match as the "Hot In Hartford" contest comes close to it's conclusion. The winner of this match up will face off against Colin McEnroe for the ultimate prize. Hartford Councilman Luis Cotto has been perhaps the biggest surprise of the contest so far as he has racked up impressive vote totals in the first two rounds. Cotto has defied the experts predictions by defeating popular weatherman Scott Haney in the first round and then handily defeating newsman Gerry Brooks, who was coming off a wildly popular Sad City interview. Can Luis keep the momentum and reach the finals?
Many analysts believe that Howard Baldwin has taken the most difficult path to the semi-finals. Baldwin started his impressive run by defeating The Hartford Courant's Helen Ubinas in the first round and then prevailing in a close battle against Mayor Pedro Segarra. Can the hockey legend and Hot In Hartford's oldest contestant continue his roll against the Councilman?
Voting ends at 11:59PM on Sunday.
