Where's Mayor Villaraigosa Today? Colorado, Of Course!
Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa appeared yesterday atthe massive rally held at USC in support of incumbent Democratic Senator Barbara Boxer, for which the major guest star was President Barack Obama. With the mid-term elections just days away, high-profile politicians are helping each other out across the nation by stumping on behalf of candidates in their party, and reaching out to sectors of voters.
For Villaraigosa, this means leaving California to reach out to voters in Colorado, notes the Daily News' Sausage Factory blog, where this weekend he'll be taking part in "get out the vote efforts" for the campaigns of Senator Michael Bennett [...] and Representative Ed Perlmutter. Much like Villaraigosa's role in helping Californian candidates Jerry Brown and Barbara Boxer, the Dems are using L.A.'s Mayor to connect with Latino voters.
