Clinton to Endorse Ruiz, Other Democrats at SoCal Rally

The former president will speak at UC Irvine this week to voice his support for Dr. Raul Ruiz, among other democrats running for office.

Former President Bill Clinton will formally endorse congressional candidate Raul Ruiz at a rally in Irvine this week.

According to the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee, Clinton will appear at a "California’s Voice" event at UC Irvine to endorse Democratic congressional candidates in Southern California.

Besides Ruiz, Clinton will endorse Julia Brownley (CA-26/Ventura), Alan Lowenthal (CA-47/Long Beach), Scott Peters (CA-52/San Diego) and Mark Takano (CA-41/Riverside), the DCCC said.

The event will be held at the Bren Center on Tuesday, Oct. 23, at 5 p.m.

Ruiz is hoping to unseat Congresswoman Mary Bono Mack, who's held the Palm Springs district since 1998.

Not surprising he'd support a guy who won't tell whether he's Mexican, Indian, or just another Ward Churchill.....

Maybe because he's an American, as we all are.

Is anybody surprised? Ruiz appears to fit right in as a divider, separating us all into little groups according to race, economics etc. Don't you just hate that?

Ruiz is not American Indian; he is Mexican (ref. Raul Ruiz) Where he was born depends upon what you read. He claims the US as his birth land; the Wall St Journal states that he was born in Mexico. And of course Clinton would endorse him. Clinton's a Democrat and will endorse any other Democrat.

It's the democrat way, Linda....they can't compete on the issues, so they turn to their hate tactics.
Karla Payne October 23, 2012 at 03:51 PM
No surprise at all, Linda. And yes, I just hate that.

Too bad Clinton wasn't a Republican, cause you have to admit he could sell scales to a snake. Doesn't matter, lots of Dems are going to be voted out.
Mariana Zuelsdorf October 23, 2012 at 04:47 PM
Good heavens, I'm thankful he ISN'T at Republican. He should be able to sell scales to s snake. Kindred types stick together.

Too funny, Mariana. You're right.
