    She has spent countless millions already but uses out of state advertising firms to make her spots. And each spot is about taxes, with a quote from the Howard Jarvis cult.

    I'd be lying if I said I wasn't worried about her winning. You can't watch TV or listen to the radio without at least one commercial from her. Name rec alone will get her the GOP nomination. And I have very little faith in my fellow Californians when it comes to elections.

      This is a report from Feb 19:

      "The things that I think we need to focus on are, first, creating and keeping jobs in California," Meg Whitman says in a campaign ad.

      "We'll get jobs back to California," Steve Poizner (photo) says in his campaign ad. "That's how we'll balance the budget."

      Gregory obtained documents from the California Secretary of State that show Poizner wrote a check for $101,000 to a television production company in Washington DC, and another $180,000 to a consultant group also in Washington. DC.

      Whitman spent $3.9 million in Virginia, $1 million in Massachusetts, over $100,000 in Oregon, almost $300,000 in Georgia, and over $800,000 in Washington DC. Some of the money went for ad buys in California, but commissions stayed in other states.
      Sarah Pompei, with Meg Whitman's campaign, told KFI News that they're assembling the very best team possible, and spending money out of state will ultimately benefit Californians."

      Well, there’s another political spin
