OXNARD (CBSLA.com) — Former President Bill Clinton was set to urge Democratic voters to head to the voting booth next week at a rally Wednesday in Oxnard.

Clinton will be on hand at Oxnard College to help bolster support for Democrats in three local races: Rep. Raul Ruiz of Palm Desert, Rep. Julia Brownley of Westlake Village, and Redlands Mayor Pete Aguilar, who is running for the 31st Congressional District seat in San Bernardino County.

At the “Get Out The Vote” rally, Clinton is expected to address the importance of voting for “advocates of the middle class like Brownley, Ruiz, and Aguilar.”

His visit comes after House Speaker John Boehner, R-Ohio, and House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-Bakersfield, stopped by the district to stump for Ruiz’s Republican challenger, Assemblyman Brian Nestande.

Former Secretary of State and potential 2016 presidential candidate Hillary Clinton was in the Southland last week for a Democratic fundraiser in Brentwood.
