Ruiz to Get Support from National Dems

Top level Democrats list the Ruiz campaign on the "red-to-blue" list, offering extra support and infrastructure to the election race.

The Democratic Congressional National Committee has tabbed Dr. Raul Ruiz’, D-Coachella) campaign against Congreesswoman Mary Bono Mack, R-Palm Springs, as being one of the most competitive races in the nation. The DCCC has placed it on their "red-to-blue" list targeting the top 20 seats that the Democrats feel they can win in November. 

In return, the DCCC will be giving financial, communications, grassroots, and strategic support to Ruiz. The program will also introduce Democratic supporters to new, competitive candidates in order to help expand the fundraising base. 

Ruiz is one of five Congressional candidates in California to be placed on the DCCC’s “red-to-blue” list of targeted districts.

Should Dr. Ruiz be succesful in his bid for Assemblywoman Bono-Mack's seat it will be due in part to her own doing. She by all accounts is a part-time resident of her CA district. Look @ her list of Bills she has authored. Have they done anything to enhance your life? She was a part of the Republican Majority that left us with the same issues we are all so upset with this upcoming election reagardless of who you support. As a reigistered Independent I have voted for the Congresswoman Bono-Mack and will do so again. Not because of her successes, but against a Candidate such as Dr. Ruiz with his a more entitlement mentality and desire for Amnesty, for those who broke the Law by entering this Country Illegally or have overstayed their Visa's.

Ron That would be a wasted vote. You yourself state Bono Mack's ineffectiveness. It's time for someone like Ruiz to stand with us, LIVE with us and fight for the issues that matter to the vast middle class. I, for one, will vote WITH Ruiz.

The grassroots support by the national democratic party is being used to hold grass roots "no gringos" allowed meetings with radical members of the community , fostering racial hatred, led by an anti- American Puerto Rican who leads the political direction of the Ruiz campaign. I can only assume the doctor isnt fully aware of the radicalism in his campaign , being new to politics. Yet if elected , I also assume his staff will continue to foster racial division in the community. Instead of pride you can expect to see increased gang violence in Coschella and Indio as his staff incites the barrio to anti gringo sentiment. Expect new radical groups to form, calling for Southern California to be retaken by Mexico , random terrorism (pipe bombs, attacks on protestant and Mormon churches, bomb threats as well as increased racial disharmony), this will be joined with new muslim terrorism , as radicals gravitate to the message and rhetoric of third world people rising against white American imperialism. Mark my words on this. There was a window of opportinity to use the Ruiz success story in a unifying, positive way but instead shadowy radicals crept into his camp.
