Former President Bill Clinton will be in the Southland today to rally support for five democratic congressional candidates.

During the event at UC Irvine, Clinton will endorse Ventura Assemblywoman Julia Brownley, Long Beach state senator Alan Lowenthal, San Diego Port Commissioner Scott Peters, Dr. Raul Ruiz of Palm Springs and Mark Takano of Riverside.

The national Democratic Party decided on the five because officials have calculated they have the best chance of defeating their Republican opponents.
