Secretary of Interior Gale Norton made another campaign stop for a Republican candidate on Tuesday, this time in California with state Sen. Dick Monteith.

According to The Merced Sun-Star, 12 farmers had the "unusual treat" of meeting with Norton. "This is a really important election," she reportedly said.

Also yesterday, Norton made a contribution of sorts to the fledgling campaign of Sen. Wayne Allard (R-Colo.). She announced she would try to settle a water rights dispute that has been an in issue in Allard's race against Democrat Tom Strickland.

And in Hawaii, Norton's interest in Native Hawaiians was used to boost the gubernatorial campaign of Republican Linda Lingle. According to the Associated Press, former White House adviser Karen Hughes said: "The status quo has resulted in a failure of Washington to hear much about the issues of Native Hawaiians."

Native Hawaiian activists are backing Democrat Mazie Hirono.
