NAPA, Calif. (AP) — Former President Bill Clinton is continuing his swing through California to mobilize Democrats on behalf of vulnerable candidates locked in tight election contests.
Clinton is scheduled to appear Sunday evening at San Jose State University with gubernatorial candidate Jerry Brown and Gavin Newsom, who is running for lieutenant governor. He will first make a stop in Napa with Congressman Mike Thompson.
Thompson is running for his seventh term in a coastal district where Democrats outnumber Republicans by 20 percent. But both Brown and Newsom are facing tough Republican challengers.
Clinton was in Los Angeles on Friday night with Brown, his former rival in the 1992 Democratic presidential primary.
