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.
