Bill Clinton to Endorse Bera Tuesday at UC Davis

Clinton will endorse candidates John Garamendi, Ami Bera, Jerry McNerney and Jose Hernandez during his speech Tuesday.

Bill Clinton will speak on the UC Davis quad Tuesday morning.

The former President of the United States will endorse several northern California Democrats who are running in close congressional races.  Clinton is expected to take the stage on the UC Davis quad around 10:30 a.m.

Clinton will endorse candidates John Garamendi (CA-03), Ami Bera (CA-07), Jerry McNerney (CA-09) and Jose Hernandez (CA-10). All of these races are considered to be competitive by both the Democratic and Republican Parties.

There will be increased security at the event as well.

Bill Clinton is the best political star power either party will see in California during this election, so good for the Demos. I don't think CD3 is in play, but his endorsement can't hurt.
