Democrat Davis, Republican Keating Push Their Candidates

Tuesday, 07 November 2000 12:00 AM

Although a number of polls show Bush making great gains in California, Davis said he was confident the state would still vote Gore by the time the polls close tonight at 8 PST.

"I think the really late surge was on behalf of Al Gore. I believe California will be in Al Gore's column," Davis said.

"I think there will be a very high turnout. This is a very close election across the country. People realize that every vote counts, and I am encouraging all Californians obviously to vote for Al Gore, but vote no matter what the Eastern pundits say about who's going to win this election.

"Our vote matters too, and we ought to weigh in. And I hope they will, and I think they will," Davis said.

In Oklahoma, which has eight electoral votes, Keating admitted he was nervous but optimistic.

"I'm chomping on all my fingernails – chomping on all my toenails," Keating said. "We're not overconfident. We're cautiously optimistic, but it is a very close race, just like Gray says. It's going to be right down to the wire.

"I think we're going to win Arkansas. We have this state – my state – up by probably 30 points even though we're heavily registered Democrat. My legislature, for example, is two-thirds Democrat. I think we're going to carry Tennessee.

"I think what's really interesting about this race is that in Texas people are saying, 'Well, the reason the popular vote is going to be so heavily for Bush is because virtually every Texan is going to vote for him,' Keating added. 'That speaks very, very wonderfully of George Bush as a person who will bring us together.' "
