First Lady to stump for Doolittle
First Lady Laura Bush will visit Northern California later this week to campaign for two GOP incumbents in hot re-election races, John Doolittle and Richard Pombo.
Her trip comes on the heels of a fundraising swing President Bush made for the two candidates at the beginning of October.
The first lady will appear at a get-out-the-vote rally for Doolittle on Thursday evening in Rocklin. She'll do a rally for Pombo in Pleasanton Friday morning.
The plans were confirmed Monday by the Doolittle and Pombo campaigns.
Doolittle is facing Democrat Charlie Brown and Pombo's opponent is Democrat Jerry McNerney. Both races have grown more competitive than expected as the national political environment shifts in Democrats' favor.
Both Pombo and Doolittle are stunk up by Abramoff's taint. I think those are the only two races in California that have been blessed by appearances from Bush, and now Laura.
"More competitive than expected" must mean Pombo and Doolittle are scared shitless enough to let the Bushes come to support them. Desperate men do desperate things. Heh.
Transparent Grid is keeping tabs on the races in CA-04 and CA-11.
