With the primary election set for Tuesday, time is running out for the California gubernatorial candidates.On Sunday, Republican candidate Steve Poizner was in Pasadena for a noon rally at the Green Hotel. On Saturday, he attended a town hall meeting in Riverside.

Before Saturday's town hall, the state insurance commissioner went door to door during a precinct walk in Santa Ana.

"You're probably going, 'Wow, all this money, all this spending, all the attacks and counterattacks.' That's one reason why I'm knocking on doors today, just to talk to voters face to face," said Poizner.

Republican gubernatorial candidate Meg Whitman also stumped in southern California Saturday. The former eBay chief executive spoke to supporters at Escondido Charter High School, and hosted a rally at Villa Del Sol in Fullerton.

She spoke about her goals for the state and said she'd be tough on illegal immigration.

"If we can send a man to the moon, how can we not secure the border? I've been to the border and our border patrol agents need manpower, more technology and two really good fences to help secure the border," said Whitman.

Whitman also held rallies Sunday; one was scheduled in Madera, with the other in Elk Grove.
