Former President Bill Clinton will endorse four Northern California Democratic candidates at a UC Davis rally Tuesday morning hosted by the Davis College Democrats. The candidates — Rep. John Garamendi (3rd District), Rep. Jerry McNerney (9th District), Ami Bera (7th District) and Jose Hernandez (10th District) — are all in races identified by their party as competitive.

The rally will begin at 10:30 a.m. on the southwest corner of the UCD Quad. Gates open at 10 a.m.

Garamendi, a former deputy secretary of the interior under Clinton, has decades of experience in public service: as a Peace Corps volunteer, state legislator, California insurance commissioner, lieutenant governor and member of Congress. He is being challenged by Republican Kim Vann, a Colusa County supervisor.

McNerney is the ranking member of the Disability Assistance and Memorial Affairs Subcommittee of the House Committee on Veterans’ Affairs. His opponent on Nov. 6 is Ricky Gill, a young Republican who grew up in the Central Valley.

Bera has practiced medicine for 20 years and served as associate dean at UCD and chief medical officer for Sacramento County. He is challenging Republican Rep. Dan Lungren.

Hernandez went from working the fields of the San Joaquin Valley to developing full field digital mammography to becoming an astronaut. He hopes to unseat Republican Rep. Jeff Denham.

Rally attendees are advised to arrive on foot, by bike or by public transportation. For more information on public transit options, visit www.unitrans.ucdavis.edu. For attendees who drive, car-pooling is encouraged and parking ($7) is likely to be available at the following facilities: South Entry Parking Structure, Lot 1, West Entry Parking Structure and Lot 25. See http://taps.ucdavis.edu/parking/info/maps.cfm for specific locations and directions to these lots.
