CA 23 Race

Crossroads GPS is running the "Vision" ad against Paul Ruiz, who is challenging Mary Bono Mack (R-CA):

 The Desert Sun reports:
Police agencies from across the Coachella Valley and the state’s largest police union joined forces Monday to challenge Dr. Raul Ruiz to explain how he has supported law enforcement in light of remarks he once made about men convicted of murdering officers.
Rep. Mary Bono Mack’s political campaign flew in a retired FBI agent, who has spoken vigorously against the convicted Leonard Peltier for more than two decades, and paid for his overnight stay after he spoke at a news conference with the officers. 
Standing side-by-side, the officers played recently uncovered audio from a 1999 rally in which then-Harvard medical student Ruiz gave a speech at a National Day of Mourning rally honoring Peltier and Mumia Abu-Jamal, two men convicted of killing law enforcement officers.
