LA mayoral candidates crisscross town on last weekend before election
LOS ANGELES Mayor James Hahn is keeping up the verbal attacks on his chief political rivals as Tuesday's election nears.The mayor is locked in a neck-and-neck battle for re-election with former state Assembly Speakers Bob Hertzberg and Antonio Villaraigosa (vee-yuh-rye-GOH'-suh).
Hahn says the two mismanaged California's budget and energy crises when they were in Sacramento. He also singled out Hertzberg's law practice for criticism, demanding to know who pays him.
Hertzberg has said attorney-client confidentiality agreements prevent him from naming his clients.
He spent the morning greeting people over breakfast at former Mayor Richard Riordan's popular, downtown diner.
Villaraigosa is traveling from one end of Los Angeles to the other as part of a 32-hour bus tour.
