More Evidence Van Tran Has Loretta Sanchez Sweating
Bringing out feisty liberal CongressmanBarney Frank
(D-MA) several weeks ago was just the warm up act of Rep.Loretta Sanchez
's efforts to excite her Democratic voter base in central Orange County where Republican challengerVan Tran
is hoping to pull an upset.
Sanchez is bringing in arguably the biggest Democratic gun there is: Bubba.
Yes, Bill Clinton is scheduled to appear at a Sanchez campaign rally this month.
The 3 p.m. October 15 event is set for the Old Orange County Courthouse in Santa Ana, probably the one local spot where the former president is still exceptionally popular.
Both campaigns admit pre-election voter polling show a narrow race for a congressional seat now occupied by OC's lone Democrat.
One of the last women Clinton campaigned for lost to an underdog, Barack Obama.
Will Tran respond with appearances by George W. Bush or George H.W. Bush?
