Recall Causes Tensions on Both Sides

Tensions erupted among both Democrats and Republicans in the California recall election yesterday.

Lieutenant Governor Cruz Bustamante´s chief strategist criticized Governor Gray Davis´ campaign, saying the Davis camp was pressuring Democratic donors and activists to withhold support from Bustamante.

The Republican dispute arose when conservative candidate Bill Simon touted new radio ads accusing actor Arnold Schwarzenegger of being a liberal, and Schwarzenegger´s spokesman fired back by comparing Simon to the unpopular Democrat Davis.
