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.
