It All Comes Down To This

In the closing days of the race between Jerry McNerney and Richard Pombo for the Congressional seat in CA-11, things are so tight that, as the pundits love to say, it's all going to come down to which candidate has the better Get Out The Vote (GOTV) effort. McNerney supporters are fired up and ready to go. If you want to join them, here are your options:
Defeat Pombo Day of Action #4
When: Saturday, November 4, 10:00 AM
Where: Civic Park, 100 Main Street, Pleasanton

Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner will join the Defenders of Wildlife Action Fund for our fourth “Defeat Pombo Day of Action” precinct walk this Saturday, November 4 at 10:00 AM.

Last Saturday, on October 28, there were 249 volunteers canvassing more than 12,000 households in the Tri-Valley area. This Saturday, we’re hoping for a turnout of 300 volunteers to join us as we sweep through the areas not canvassed on October 28 in Pleasanton, Dublin, San Ramon, and Danville to reach more than 15,000 voting households in the four cities for a strong kick-off to GOTV, or Get Out The Vote.
