MODESTO BEE: In joint rally in Modesto, Cox and Denham decry opponents’ “Bay Area values”

Republican candidate for California governor John Cox was swarmed by supporters as he rolled his “Help Is On the Way” tour bus into a McHenry Avenue parking lot for a campaign stop Sunday afternoon. He also was met there by U.S. Rep Jeff Denham, R-Turlock, who’s campaigning to keep his 10th Congressional District seat.

Both candidates painted their races as a fight for the state’s future and against San Francisco Bay Area values. Cox’s opponent is Lieutenant Governor and former San Francisco Mayor Gavin Newsom. Denham’s is Josh Harder, a Turlock-born-and-raised venture capitalist in Boston, New York City and San Francisco before he returned to the Valley to teach business at Modesto Junior College.

“Take a look at that city,” Cox said of San Francisco. He was met with boos and groans of agreement. It used to be a wonderful city, he said, but run by Newsom, it was “run into the ground.”
