Congressional Candidates Make the Rounds One Day Ahead of Election

Congresswoman Many Bono Mack will be meeting with volunteers, while challenger Dr. Raul Ruiz will be making a few stops of his own-- one of them including the city of Banning, campaign officials say.

The incumbent in the 36th Congressional District race will visit campaign volunteers Monday, while her challenger hits three cities on the last day of the campaign.

Rep. Mary Bono Mack, R-Palm Springs, who has been in office since 1998, will meet with volunteers around the district. She is scheduled to visit Republican headquarters on Dr. Carreon Drive in Indio at 2 p.m., spokesman Jim Specht said.

Her challenger, emergency room physician Raul Ruiz, will attend a "Get Out the Vote" rally at noon at Palm Springs' Frances Stevens Park, at the corner of North Palm Canyon Drive and East Alejo Road.

The Democratic candidate will canvass neighborhoods in Banning starting at 3 p.m. at 2034 W. Ramsey St., and will end the day with a 6 p.m. rally at 49305 Grapefruit Blvd. in Coachella, according to spokesman Patrick Boland.

I will not be Voting for either of these two Candidates. One wants Open Borders(his Parents originally came to the U.S. as Illegal Aliens) and Higher taxes to increase Entitlements and buy future Democrat Votes. The other has not done anything of significance in her many Taxpayer Supported years sitting in Congress. This, coupled with being a Part-Time Resident of her District.

Ron, if you don't vote for Mary you are in effect voting for Ruiz. He is definitely the worse choice. Vote Bono Mack and then get involved with her organization to make known what you don't like and help her make the changes you deem necessary. Her role in govt has not been fairly addressed by Ruiz. http://bono.house.gov/ Besides which she will be needed to further President Romney's agenda for putting all of America back on track, not just Coachella Valley. Thanks for considering this.

PS We need someone who knows their way around DC, not a newby with VERY questionable background and ultra liberal practices.
