Pat Akin is a citrus farmer and the son of migrant workers known as "fruit tramps" who settled in Ivanhoe, a rural town snuggled up to the base of the Sierra foothills in the San Joaquin Valley. Akin is a registered Democrat who says he "votes for more Republicans than Democrats . . . but I believe in people, not big business, which is why I'm registered the way I am." Like many in this boom town valley with its deep agricultural roots, Akin prides himself on his voting independence.

Budget cuts will probably not force elimination of the ranger horse patrol in Yosemite National Park, Rep. Richard H. Lehman (D-Sanger) said.
