Candidates Hitting State Hard Today

Governor Gray Davis and Republican challenger Bill Simon will spend the final hours before Election Day crisscrossing the state. The two planned to hold several rallies today in a last-minute attempt to collect critical votes in an election where low turnout is expected.

Governor Davis set out on a two-day sweep yesterday through the state from his hometown Los Angeles to the Central Coast’s scenic Monterey.

He is traveling with fellow candidates on a slate that hopes to win the first Democratic shutout of statewide offices in California history.

Meanwhile, Simon and his Republican ticket-mates boarded a bus for the final day of their “Fire Gray Davis Tour.”

Simon was in Modesto Saturday for a stop on a barnstorming last minute campaign tour, with more than 300 supporters greeting him at the Modesto Airport.
