Whitman out of the Gates With Negative Ad

More

Brown leads Whitman by single digits in most polls, but this will be a close race: Whitman is running as a relatively moderate Republican as California sees its budget situation as unsustainable, and her vast amounts of personal wealth will allow her to run slick ads throughout the state. Going up with a one-minute spot statewide, so early in the race, seems like a preview of what's to come.
