Clinton stumps for Dems in Calif. House races

DAVIS, Calif. (AP) - Former President Bill Clinton is imploring California university students to vote for Democrats this November, acting in what he says are their own best interests.

Clinton rallied about 5,000 enthusiastic students and supporters Tuesday at the University of California, Davis, saying he wanted to provide a "fact check" he says was missing from last week's presidential debate.

President Barack Obama was criticized for failing to respond to Republican challenger Mitt Romney's claims about the economy and other issues.

Clinton said Republicans failed at their number one goal of keeping unemployment above 8 percent.

He appeared with four California congressional candidates in newly competitive seats: incumbent Reps. John Garamendi and Jerry McNerney, and Democrats Ami Bera and Jose Hernandez, who are vying to unseat incumbent GOP congressmen in the Sacramento area.
