A White House spokeswoman says President Bush has no plans to appear with any candidates in the California governorÂ´s recall election when he visits the state later this week. But she isnÂ´t ruling out a behind-the-scenes meeting with GOP hopefuls.
Bush did not answer reporters who asked him last week whether heÂ´d campaign for Arnold Schwarzenegger. But he did say he thinks the actor would be a good governor.
Meanwhile, the Democratic target of the recall says former President Clinton has given him advice. Governor Davis also says he hopes the former president and Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton will campaign for him. Davis says the couple is well thought of in California. Clinton representatives have had no comment.
